Default Re: All the bottle caps I made yesterday are RUINED!!!!

It will help out tremendously if you seal the images first. You can do it with either Mod Podge or a spray laquer (like a clear gloss). You need to seal the back and let it dry. Then seal the front and let that side dry. Punch out your images as normal and then attach them to the cap. It is usually helpful to then seal the sides of your images. If you use mod podge then get some on a toothpick to trace the sides (helps to keep the resin from seeping under the image). If you use a spray sealer then just lay them all out on something like cardboard, take them outside and give them a good spray. Let them dry completly before resining!

Hope that helps,
