yet another bottle cap question!
o.k. so I have all my pictures printed, and cut. my bottle caps are ready my 2 part epoxy resin is ready I glue, dry resin wait and now my pic's are under this gorgeous layer of resin only problem is the paper looks mottled like it is still wet! is it the paper? the glue, the epoxy, or me? help please because the 20 sets that I did look like crap. I won't even use them for my kids!
I can't help you as I don't do bottle caps but I just wanted to tell you I'm sorry that happened! I know how frustrating it is to work so hard and things don't turn out like we hoped.
I'm sure someone here will be able to help you!
I used photo paper the first time I tried. Mine did the exact same thing! They looked grey and blah. I was told to paint the top of the bottlecap white, let it dry and then glue the photo to the top. Yes, this worked however your paint has to be in a perfect circle or it may show.
I gave up and threw it all in a box!!
As for the bubbles. When you pour the resin on, put your mouth close to the cap and slowly exhale onto the resin and the bubbles will go away. DO NOT inhale on them, just exhale on it. This is on the instructions in the box.
If you are using regular card stock you need to seal it with a spray sealer. Your pictures are getting mottled looking because they are bleeding. I use photo paper & it helps but if you have a large area of heavy color they bleed also. You would be better off sealing all of your images before putting on the epoxy.
