Default Re: About Rio doming Resin and Bottle Caps

Thanks for the tips! I have been wanting to try this, but haven't ordered the stuff yet. Someone had offered to do a group buy so we could get them cheaper & save a bit on shipping, but apparently that never happened since I've seen no traffic on the subject since.

How many caps does a bottle of this stuff do, do you think? Just wondering

i let the resin set for about 2 minutes in the middle of the cap, then i use a toothpick to "pull" the resin to the edge 9might need to dip the toothpick in the resin you mixed to get a bit more on and after that, i take the toothpick and coax the resin around the side to cover the picture and the side of the metal completely.

Also, make sure you don't put too much resin on top or it will over flow. I use a drop about half a dime in diameter.

Also, I have never once had trouble with bubbles. to do this, i make sure i fold the mixture together very GENTLY and let it sit for about 5 minutes before i put it on the caps.

Hope that helps a bit, I will take pics when I have time
