Default How to apply envirotex lite to bottlecaps

I have ben using triple thich for bottlecaps and just wasn't that happy with it so I bought some envirotex lite.

What is the best way to apply? With a medicine dropper? If so, do you just drop a few drops in the center and let it spread? (I have no idea how thick the ET is because I haven't mixed any yet.) Does it run off the edge?

I greatly apprecaite any and all advice!

I use a paintbrush and glob it on and then spread to teh edges. Mine does not go over the edge of the image, however.

I use a syringe without the needle. I do a few drops in the middle & then go do the same on others. Then I go back and add where it needs more. If I am having trouble getting it to the edges I use a toothpick or popsicle stick to help it to the edges. I have learned that it is better to do 2 thinner coats than 1 big thick one. When I do a thick coat it always ends up dribbling down the side.

Beth - how do you do 2 coats? do you let one dry and then put the other on top, or put on, de-gas and then come back and put on more???
