1) I read you should cover them to avoid getting dust in them..how do you cover them?
i stick mine in a curio cabinet but you could use 2 cookie sheets that are the same size and put one on top of the other
2) the blowing through the straw to get out bubbles, this probably seems dumb but I am assuming you do this before they dry? If you use a lighter when do you do that to get out bubbles?
i use a lighter, let them sit for a few minutes then run the lighter over them and they will pop!!
3) I have the 1" caps right now (not flattened). What size do you punch your image to be? Do you do it at one inch as well, and if you do....how do you get the ETLite to bond to the cap and not just the picture?
you need a 1inch circle punch,then use modge podge or a sticker maker to stick your images to the cap then add another coat of modgepodge over the top , let that dry then add the etlite over that.
I think that is is for now LOL Thanks as always for the help!
