Pete is right about cooling bar too fast when its made.. Riechenbach special black has a bubble to be found in about every 3 inches of it. I guess that is what makes is special. They are in there before you break it because if you are lucky, you will get lucky and crack it right on the bubble.

to avoid bubbles, i will be very careful about how i shape it before i put the starter bubble in the color... no rust on my marker or jack handles is a must, don't block it unless you know your color can take a blocking.. some colors will stick to the block. I always flash it right before i gather so the skin is warm.
