Default Bottle Cap questions

Yesterday I purchased some bottle cap images from Etsy and plan to go home tonight and try to make some, but I have a few questions first.

What's best to glue them down with?

What resin or glaze do you recommend/do I need a sealer before using this?

Can I get the supplies at Walmart?

Do you prefer the images on the inside or outside for necklaces?

Do you prefer the caps smashed or standing up?

I have my opinions on the last two questions, but wanted to know what the general consensus is.

Also, a few of the images were sent as a PDF file. I have saved them to a disk so that I can print them at work, but I can't use photo paper there. I had planned to take them to Walmart and print them at one of the kiosks there, but I don't know if they will recognize the file format. Any advice there would be greatly appreciated.

I know I have a lot of questions, and I did do a search, just didn't find the answers to these questions.

Does anyone know if Diamond Glaze can be found at Walmart? I checked the website, but it only shows one store in all of Oklahoma that carries it.

No problem. I remember seeing it posted a while back and I saved it for when I attempt bottle caps. I have an order of blank ones on the way!

Ok, so I didn't find any of the products mentioned in the craft section at Walmart so I bought some spray on Hi-gloss glaze that's used for ceramics, etc. I applied several coats, and it does build up and make it shiny, but so far it hasn't hardened enough. Any other ideas of what I could put over it to make it harden?

Also, I thought someone mentioned that you could find some of the glazes in the auto section or the paint section. Any idea what they are called?

We have a Hobby Lobby about 30 miles away. Didn't want to have to drive over there if not necessary. I was looking up the enviro-tex and it seems like they have a lot of different formulas. Which do you use, and do you have a good website I can order it off of?

On the enviro-tex, how do you apply it to the top of the bottle cap without it running over the edges? I put the images on the top instead of on the inside. I think I may have someone to go pick some up for me tonight. How much is the 4oz bottle?
