Awesome, thanks!

So is your test in your book? I have TWO COPies.  If not, do tell how to
test shivering my dear man!

And your attention to this question is WELCOME!   Everyone else was on
another subject including our Mel!

Mel, do tell which melter and pacifier you used? Or your whole recipe?

Have you used this on your white or your red clay mix? Was there shivering?

Thx Rox in Oregon (oh my !!! It’s sunny!)
