So my fiance and I are having our cocktail lounge be filled with candles and cylinder vases that have japanese river rocks and floating candles.
I did a test run today to make sure it will look how I envisioned it and THANK GOODNESS I DID because it doesn’t! I poured the water in with the rocks and air bubbles are all over the rocks now..I used tap water..maybe that is the reason..any suggestions or tips would be very much appreciated! My coordinator will be putting the vases together the way I want them on our big day, but now that I tried it..I need to know how to fix the problemo!
THANKS BEES!!!! =)

How long has it been since you poured in the water? If there was air trapped in the pores of the rocks, setting up earlier might give it enough time to saturate. Have you tried shaking it or stirring it up, or would that mess things up? If you get the bubbles to come on up, they won’t re-appear once there’s no more air down there. (Unless there’s some weird chemical reaction going on, in which case you’ve got some weird rocks and probably want to replace them ^_^) Good luck!

Wet the rocks before you put them in the vase and then fill it with water- it breaks the surface tension that allows the bubbles to form.

I heard that using water that has been sitting for awhile can help.
