A problem with parts of your SFGW doll "melting" when you put it into the water, leaving holes the size of a quarter or larger? Before putting the piece in your water filled container, quickly run water over it. The piece should change color, except for any area that was not fired properly - that area is usually gray. You need to re-fire it or using a facemask, clean the piece as if it had never been fired.
