Default Cap Determination!!!!

AHHHHHH!!!!! I am down right determined to figure out how to do this!!!! OK - Quesiton - I found some great scrapbook paper with WI Badgers on it - fits perfectly on a cap. Punched it out, adhered it to cap, sealed with ET....and you can see right through the white paper to the red cap. It looks like poop!!!!!! Do I need to seal the image first with clear nail polish????

I printed out some images on regular (not photo) paper, following some onine directions, sprayed them with the acrylic photo sealer they suggested, and they same dang thing happened!!!!

ALSO - it looks as the ET lite kind of shrunk in from the edges. I don't have perfect bubble anymore - do I need to glob on more??? I am applying with a paintbrush. HHHHEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPP please!!!!!!

Shelly,
Would it be possible to can your paper and the print it out on kodak photo paper? That is thicker and will work better on caps. I am not really familiar with that type paper, but I think if you can scan it and reprint, it might help.
Also for glazing, I have a tutorial on my site at GreenHouse Butterflies Graphic Designs and it is on the left side top. Click the link that says bottlecap tutorials.
Or use this link
Bottle cap projects

If you need more help, send me an e-mail at [email protected] and I will be glad to help you!

I don' t make caps, but I have heard a lot of talk, and thee is something a lot of the ladies spray on to seal it. I can't say for sure what it is...maybe like a spray acrylic or something?

Do NOT use clear nail polish. Clear nail polish yellows and will look terrible once it does.

Thanks, ladies. I did spray with the acrylic sealer - have no clue why it is looking so crappy. It bleeds right through!!!
