    after it comes out, i like to smash it in between two plates to flatten it down more. and if your making a ring, i know its not a smart idea, but i wrap it around my finger right after i take it out the oven to fit my finger perfectly. its a little hot, but it hardens INSTANTLY. seriously, instantly.
