Don't worry about the bubbles. Apply the ET Lite a few bottlecaps at a time, then run a light ( I prefer candle lighters) over the bottlecap and it will pop the bubbles. It take ET Lite about 24 hours to fully dry.

Have Fun
Nicole, you mean you use a long handled lighter to pop the bubbles? I have made bottle caps for a while now and use ET lite and sometimes I don't get bubbles and sometimes I cannot seem to get the bubbles out. Never heard of this trick only to use a straw a blow on the bottle caps to get the bubbles out. When you use the lighter do you use it straight over the ET lite on the top or underneath the bottle caps from below? Sorry for all the questions just really interested!
