How to Avoid Trapping Bubbles in Epoxy Resin

In almost all of my craft projects, epoxy resin is a vital tool for ensuring a high-quality finish. Professional artists and manufacturers pour epoxy resin over their finished products to give them a secure, glossy, and expert-grade final look. One problem I run into a lot during all of my epoxy projects is the persistence of so-called 'epoxy bubbles'. Any air that gets trapped in your resin after it has dried can often ruin the appearance and quality of your finished work. Yuck! However, I've learned that there is a simple solution to avoiding this. I've written a handy guide to help you get bubbles out of epoxy resin in just a few seconds flat.
