Default Bottlecap Epoxy Help

I read in a thread once that some people use 1 inch clear epoxy stickers for their bottlecaps.

I can't find these anywhere. Does anyone happen to know where I can get them?

Also,any tips would be helpful!

Thanks!!

I was just in the $1 store and saw them! Just an idea you never know where you find things!

I found them at Walmart but they tend to come off the bottlecaps easily and not stick down pat. At least for me.

Thanks for the tips! I'll check walmart and the dollar store.


I just can't get epoxy to come out smooth.

I used to use those, they didn't stay on... I feel bad that I ever sold them to my customers, eek! Have you tried this "Triple Thick brush-on glaze"? That is what I've been using for a while and it's awesome. I just brush it on with a paint brush. I found it at Hobby Lobby.

I use Aleene's paper glaze to seal the top and have not had a problem!

It's DecoArt that makes the tripe thick gloss. I used to use it a couple of years ago but it cracks really bad. Michaels sells it for about $5 a jar.

yeah, what pixie said. I have had no problems with it though, it goes on great & retains a smooth cover. I also read online before that Krylon makes it as well, but I couldn't find their glaze anywhere. Oh well.

BTW, if any of you want those clear round stick on things that you're talking about... I have some and would be willing to send them to you if you pay the shipping charge
