Painting bottle cap can be very challenging. It took me a very long time to master it. So many things get factored into if your cap turns out nice or not. I can't give my secrets, but I am happy to paint caps for anyone that needs them. My prices are very cheap at only .10 each with a minimum of 25 caps. Many ladies on here have been more than satisfied with my work. Please see these threads for my colors and also comments from others:

Let me know if anyone would like some. I have painted 2,400 for ladies on this group already and I just got another huge order of caps in!

thanks but unfortunately that doesn't help those of us that are trying to learn how to paint them ourselves

no worries, i have tried a couple different methods & just waiting to see which one i like best & then i will post the details for all of you wanting to learn.

What problems are you having when painting them? I made some pink ones that turned out just fine. Why don't you post your issues and maybe someone will help figure it out.

I'm one of the ladies who have ordered caps from Cristi and at only .10 a piece, it's not worth my time to waste trying to figure out how to do it to make it look nice, not to mention the cost & hassle of getting all the caps & paint when they are this cheap. Cristi's are way awesome, they look fabulous & I am hoping to make some bottlecaps this week w/ the bottlecap graphics I also got from her. I too looked into making my own, but with all the trial & error & money that I'd waste trying to figure it out, I'd rather pay someone else .10 a cap, because that's well worth it to me. But that's just my opinion.

again that is great for people who want to buy them but this thread was regarding how to paint them not buy them.

initially i was just trying to figure out which was the best method to use so was hoping someone that had done it would have some suggestions. but i just did a little research online & have figured out several paints that seem to work great i'm just waiting a few weeks to see how they hold up. it really isn't hard if you use a good paint and seal it.

i have done both spray painting as well as hand painting which sounds time consuming but it really wasn't.

the spray paint will def leave a smoother surface but for those who live in cold weather or don't want to go outside to spray can always paint them.

i will post the process i used when test is complete but a few good brands i would suggest are:

if you use a primer, paint & sealer will always have the best results. a lot of people say they don't use the primer but i did.

rust-oleum excellent brand from home depot offers craft spray paint & brush on as well as the primer & sealer. high quality.

krylon spray paint & they have a spray sealerbrush on paint as well

delta permenamel great for metal & coats nice goes with surface conditioner & sealer

more to come....
