Default Need help with bottlecaps

I just made my first bottle cap and I have a few questions.

1. What kind of glue do most people have the best luck with? I wried E6000 this weekend because you all have talked about it but I don't really like it. It is so stinky and messy. At least I can pick hot glue strings off but with that stuff if there is an oops I'm SOL.

2. I poured the resin over it but it seems to have un down quite a bit and I can feel on the side where the paper is attached to the bottlecap. Is that normal? Do I need more resin?

are you using the E6000 to glue the image to the bottle cap?

I tried it. I also tried E6000 to line clippies. What a mess! On the bottlecaps I tried, E6000, hot glue, and Elmer's. I'm noth THRILLED with any of them. I was wondering what others use.

I use stickers, xyron machine & glue stick. I have found that the liquid glues are too messy & the edges of the images pull up & I have to keep messing with them until they are dry.
As for the resin, start in the middle & work your way outward until you get to the edge. You really shouldn't feel the edge of the image as it could be peeled off by little fingers if it isn't sealed down.

really........ the edges of the images on the bottlecaps I bought can be felt and also peeled off if they really wanted to be........... Mine are the same way......... so that means they aren't being done right???

What kind of resin do you use and where do you get it at? Can you get it at Wally or do you have to go to Michaels or HL?
