Volcano Workshop FAQ's

There are several reasons why this might happen.
A) Too slow mixing: do all your mixing in about 4 to 8 seconds max, be quick so you don’t lose too much gas.
B) Not compressed enough: you can mould the bomb in your hand, but press as hard as possible to make a solid natural bomb.
C) Not compressed enough: you can also mould the bomb in a teaspoon, but press as hard as possible to make a very solid neat looking bomb.
D) Humid weather: can affect your bomb too, it might keep fizzing without getting a ‘crust’
E) make sure you’ve added enough red dye. Too little liquid will make the bomb just too crumbly. Too much liquid will turn it into a pool of bubbling lava ooze!
NOTE: if you leave your bomb a long time in dry weather it should go hard. If you break it open you’ll see all the bubbles. Just like a real bread crust bomb ( or pumice). But a hard bomb will be quite un-reactive in water as the chemicals have been used up.
AND:… some bombs just don’t expand but grow big blisters or bubbles on the surface. This is also like some natural volcanic bombs.
