Bubbles in My Icing

Any ideas why I continually get bubbles in my RI? I tried making it thick and adding water like several have said, I've tried mixing it with all the water a full 10 minutes and it gets peaks like meringue!  Then other times one RI icing bag will be great and another has bubbles! Does anyone have any ideas? I have watched videos on Royal icing by Ali Bee,  Montreal Confections, SweetSugarbelle and I can't remember all the rest. I use a spritzer bottle to add moisture. Also my icing seems to dry so fast. I know that means it needs more moisture, but I when I add water to make it more runny, that seems to be when I get bubbles. Hoping someone can help. I will still continue to try new consistencys! I just takes so long to make cookies when I can't get the icing right. I figure ways to cover it up or fix it, but doing it right the first time would be so nice! I have even painted water over the top of single colors to smooth over flooding that has dried too fast. It has to be on a single color though. See the face and the arrow. It actually helped the hair though! He is a warrior after all!
