Exclamation Im so frustrated--Bottle caps

I need help so bad. I made some caps today and the finish caps look like there wet along the edges this has happen to me before. I made sure they were glue the first time. Second time I redid them and used the sticker maker. But still the caps looks wet. Plz help me someone. Im using the "easy cast". I never had problems before does anyone recommended a different cast method.

Does it look like your top coat stuff seeped under your paper? I'm not familiar with "easy cast". I use modge podge to adhere and seal my image and then Envirotex Lite. I have had the problem of my ET getting under my images if they are not sealed really well. I mainly had this problem when using my own printer and photo paper to print my images. I've started printing them at Walmart now and haven't had that problem.

I do the same thing now. I used to use nail polish to seal my images but sometimes they would be ok and sometimes not. I LOVE using the modge podge to seal!!! You can't beat the envirotex lite, IMO That stuff is awesome! I am not familiar with easy cast either Lots Lots cheaper to print at walmart for me than on my own computer!! I know that I didn't use the envirotex lite for the longest because of the price but then I used my 50% off at hobby lobby and got it for $10 and it goes a looooong way!!! HTH

I tried the Easy Cast because I couldn't find the ET lite. The stuff is HORRIBLE! Awful smelling and it never did set up. Throw it out and get some ET - you won't regret it!

Thanks I think I am going to get it because it does smell and I had a few problems with it since I bought it. But same here micheals didn't have it just the huge gallon one.

Colors can definitely vary depending on where/how things are printed.
Try sealing the image with modge podge before using the ETLite. That works for me sometimes. But it could cause your image to run so try it on one or two first.

Would a spray sealant work?
