Default Re: Bottle cap--NO RESIN!

I want to make some, but don't want to fool with resin. I've been doing a lot of reading on here and it looks like several people recommend using the "X" shaped sticker maker to adhere the images to the bottle cap. Do I still need to go over that with something else to make sure it "sticks" or can I just glue the reinstones directly to the sticker? Any help is greatly appreciated.
I'm not a big bottlecap person, but the ones I made I used modpodge and Diamond Glaze. I glue the image to the inside of the bottle cap with mod podge. I also smooth a thin layer of MP over the image. After that dry's thoroughly, I cover with a thin layer of Diamond Glaze. If I want to use a rhinestone, I place it in the wet Diamond Glaze. Then let that dry and your BC is ready. Sometimes I use a second layer of DG, if needed. HTH
