Plastic Bag of Wet Pottery Clay Caused Formica Countertop to Bubble Up

I left my pottery clay in a kitchen trash bag on the kitchen counter made of Formica type surface (remember I am in Germany). It caused the counter surface to make tiny bubbles. I am a renter so this is a costly error, can anyone help me?


Thanks so much.

The formica is glued on. Where the bubbles are, the glue is no longer adhering to the formica. You should be able to solve the problem with heat and a heavy, flat object to weigh it down.

First you can try using a blow dryer to heat (but not scorch) the area, then while it is still hot, lay the weight on top for several hours. If that doesn't work, you can iron the area through a towel to heat it up, then put the weight on.
