It sure is if I use them ;D
Seriously, I get the same effect. You call them H Kisses, some of us admit that they're nipples. And if I try to pat them down ever so gently, I get a mess.
I hope someone does have a suggestion, I'd love to be able to use mine.
Well, there are a couple of tricks, but they don't always work for me. One is to shake your paper to even out the dots. The other that I have tried is to use a circular motion and stop squeezing at the bottom of your dot, not the top, if that makes sense.
I have also found if you tu on your heat gun and hold it over the perfect pearls (not close maybe a foot or so away) the air levels them out. I also tap the paper from the back.
I use mine more for paint tho. I use them to edge flowers and things like that. If you don't have success using them as pearls just use them as paint. 🙂
