Default Re: How do you waterproof bottle caps using Epoxy Stickers?

Be sure to use a lighter (I use a bbq lighter, target has a bunch in the dollar section and they are now 50% off!) and run it over the resin about 5 minutes after you apply the resin to get the bubbles out.
Oh my goodness. I'm such a dummy. I didn't get back on here before I did the mixture and made the bottle caps so I didn't see about using a lighter to pop the bubbles. I kept popping bubbles All night!!!! and when I thought they were all gone I went to bed. Woke up this morning, there were some little bubbles on the sides. Luckily, I made a small batch so I will try again.... Never thought there was this much into making them, wow.
