    Try some bubble busters. They have to be kept clean to work well but they are hard to clean. Eventually they start getting clogged with set up resin. If you have aluminum ones, as opposed to the cheaper plastic kind, you can periodically burn out the accumulated resin with a propane torch.

    Coat the bubble busters with liquid automotive paste wax and let it dry. Several coats, letting each dry, will make cleaning them a lot easier.
