Bubble in the finish

Bev Thomas
>I have had a problem develop when turning pens. After I take the pen off the lathe I sometimes have a bubble in the finish adjacent to the centre band. I use Lee Valley's Turner's Polish, which is a shellac based polish, and top it off with several coats of Liberon wax stick. It's very frustrating because it's not visible until the pen is removed from the lathe. I hope someone has some suggestions.
Thanks. Bev
