Bottle cap images and water proofing.
So I am after some advice on what to do or use to help water proof/resist bottle cap images I print off myself.
I have been making some and they tend to run, some little ones were in the rain walking home from school and the images were destroyed. They were sealed with epoxy stickers, and I hot glued them into the caps.
After some googling and investigation I bought a product at my local store that is a paper sealer for scrapbooking. Mod Podge I think it is called. Would u paint it on the back of the image seeing as the front is sealed with the epoxy dot, or would I paint back and front, or will it make the front run seeing as its just out of my printer.
I know you all will have some fabulous ideas for me and I am looking forward to hearing them!
Re: Bottle cap images and water proofing.
I have not personal used Mod podge for bottle caps. I have used an acrylic spray sealer that works well though. You can buy it at any craft store, usually in their framing dept. You spray it on lightly and let it dry and then do a second coat. I usually wait a couple of hours after printing images before sealing them, so that the ink has a chance to really dry.
Also, you can use resin instead of stickers for a truly waterproof seal. Resin will seal the whole cap shut so not water can get in. A sticker cannot do that and water will still get in if the cap is out in the rain or goes in a pool.
