The answer is to warm the gelcoat with a hairdryer before you add the catalyst and when you apply it, make sure you spread it and spread it and spread it about and it should remove all the bubbles.

Another option is if your doing something small is to make it vibrate and that would release the bubbles also.

Hmm, what do you have at home to make these vibrations?
