Did you let the top coat of mod podge dry before putting it into the bottle cap with more mod podge?
hi, i did a different test: day 1 i sprayed 4 coats of acrylic sealer on the images printed onto kodak photo paper and let dry as recommended. and then the next day i did 3 coats of mod podge on front a back of each image. and then the 3rd day i glued them down to my caps and then the 4th day i poured my resin. half the batch had the "dark ring" around the images
but the center was not affected. which kinda got me heated wasting half the caps and all the time i put into them
so, now im thinking i should just get them printed from a laser jet and to invest in a sticker maker. just not sure which sticker maker to get.
its a learning experience but ultimately i just want to get my images water proof so thats why i want to use resin.
