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.

Good luck!!!!

Default bottle cap

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.

I use glossy photo paper and always seal mine with a spray clear coat before I add my glaze. I wasted way too much time so now I just always spray them first.
