Teachers should give individual projects to the students. They should enable them to do research paper service their work independently. It helps in building confidence and creates ability to become self-dependent.

Crumb Coat
by: Michelle (editor)

Hi Dee,

Your answer is a crumb coat. This is a thin coat of un-tinted buttercream that's applied before the top coat. It 'sets' the crumbs so you get a smooth finish on the final buttercream layer.

Check out how to do it here.
