Default Bottlecaps ?

Do you use these for your ribbon centers ? How do you seal them ?
I know to use a 1 inch scrapbooking punch to use for the pictures. But how do you seal them to make the paper /sticker not come off ? kat

There is a resin that you can get at Michaels. I can't remember the name, but it is near the glue at my store. It is a two part mix and when you marry them together they start to harden. I will try and think of the name.

Default paper glaze

I use a glue stick to stick the image to the bottle cap,and then use clear nail polish to seal the image otherwise it runs when the glaze is added. I use aleene's paper glaze, you just put the glaze on, I usually go around the edges and then fill in the circle and then let them dry, it can take a few days if you put the glaze on too thickly.

Default bottlecap sealing

You can use Envirotex Lite to seal your caps. It is a two part resin mixture and looks like glass when it dries! It is awesome!

I use the one that Shari mentioned it's called: Envirotex Lite. You have to make sure you mix the nmxture well in a disposable cup or container and not get it on anything else..like your countertops..It will never come off.
Then blow on the little bubbles that might form after you pour it on the bottle caps.
cover them with a box to protect them from dirt and leave them for at least 24 hour.

Default bottle caps

You can buy the Envirotex lite at Michaels or online. I also bought some at Lowes, but its not called Envirotex lite, but is the same thing ( a 2 part epoxy mix). The smell is not very pleasant, I usually do mine in my kitchen with the fan on. It isn't too bad.

Hello I just joined the list. I wanted to know how to print pictures from my computer for this? What is the best size to do this and is there a link to some cute seasonal picts that would work.
Thanks so much.

Hey Ladies!!

My name is Debbie and I'm brand spanking new to the forum. However, I have been making bottlecap necklaces for awhile now, and bottlecap centers for bows. I attach the pic with spray adhesive. It seems to dry rather quickly. I use the extra large scrapbooking page pebbles for sealing. They are just an epoxy sticker. No mess involved, they just stick on the pic.
