Default Re: Can i see a side pic of a finished bottle cap

Pat, try a little less resin and the modge podge, I run the modge podge down the side and let it dry, then when I put the resin on, I use a toothpick to put it on around the sides, put a small drop in the middle and then use the toothpick to push it around the rest of the cap. I dont have any finished ones on hand right now, but will take pics of how I do it when I do my next batch this weekend

when you modge podge over the image, just modge podge down the side of the cap sometimes I have to hold the image down for a few seconds.

Make sure the image is 100% dry and stuck (if you use modge podge to stick it to the cap then 100% dry for like 15-20 minutes) If you are using the sticker machine, I stick mine down really good and make sure I press around the edges and then I dont seal over the top with modge podge for a couple days so the image is stuck

Also, make sure if you are using a sticker machine, that you have PERMANENT sticker paper in it.
