Default Envirotex questions

I got some Envirotex last night to use on bottlecaps. What methods do you use to apply the resin to the tops of the bottle caps? How do I keep it from running over the edge. I have about 20 caps to do, approximately how much do I need to mix up? I don't want to mix to much and waste it.

Thanks, that gives me a lot better idea of how much I need. I would've mixed way too many. I have some that I did with the spray on glaze that didn't harden. Do you think I could do the resin over that, or do I just need to give those to my kids to play with?

I have had so many problem with doing bottlecap, but now i am a champion bottlecap maker.

I do 200 at a time.

i use a cap full of each resin at a time. Make sure you are mixing really good for at least a whole minute. (if you don't it will just be sticking) I use a infant medication dropper. I fill the whole dropper up and squirt a small round circle in the center of about 5 to 10 circles and i get some more allowing time for the envirtomex to spread over the bottle caps. Then when i don't with all my resin in my paper cup, I get a toothpick out an make sure that all the cap is covered with the resin. after I done doing all the bottlecaps with the tooth pick, I get my lighter out and fry those little bubbles ( the funniest part of the whole thing..lol.) Then i start on the next batch. I do come back to the previous batch about 20 mins. later to make sure they don't have any bubbles.


hope that helps

You don't know how much that helped me. I was planning to use either a medication dropper or a syringe. So a capful will go that far? So glad I asked, I would have wasted half a bottle!

no no!! you would be wasting a lot and it would dry to fast to you that. The most I will do at once is 2 cap full of each. That only when i am doing 50 or 60 at a time.

good luck!! It feels good t finally give back to someone on this site.

if you want a more raised look just use more of the etlite on top, just not to much or it will run off and your bottlecap will stick to the surface its drying on lol!!! ( i did that already ) lol!!

I don't make bottle caps but I use etlite for washer necklaces.
I put them on a cookie cooling rack and that rack on a baking sheet. Both are exclusively for this purpose. After I cover the washers with ET I let them sit a moment and then blow on them with a straw. All the bubbles pop.
I let them set for several hours and before they are as hard as rocks I move them slightly to be sure they are not stuck to the rack.
HTH in some way.
