I let them dry over night before punching them out.
I run them through my Xeron sticker maker and then attach to my already painted and dried bottle caps.
I then spray with Krylon clear sealer and let that dry over night.
This time I used the Enviro Tex Lite and used a 1 inch sponge brush to apply it. It worked great. (The last time I did a few but used a popcicle stick to spread it and didn't get that technique perfected!) I kept watching them and applying small dots of resin with the sponge brush as they needed it. Then I went over them with a torch lighter to get out the bubbles. They look really good. This is the first time I've been proud of them!

Hope this helps!

I use ET Lite as well and the Xron sticker maker. with ET Lite if you have some that don't turn out right you can apply a second layer of ET after a couple of days and they turn out great. If I use printed images from Walgreens I don't even spray with a sealer just go right over the pic....
