Default How to add bling to bottlecaps?

I have searched this forum and also googled to find instructions, without luck. So, please don't do a "let me google it for you", unless you can really find the answer. LOL. I know I have seen this on here somewhere, but can't find it. I found an old post that gave a website link with insturctions on how to add the bling, but of course the link doesn't work anymore.

I use modge podge to adhere and seal and then I use ET Lite. My question is at what point do i add the bling? I don't want to ruin a whole bunch trying to figure it out. Does it go under or on top of the ET? I think it would stay better if it was applied before the ET but wasn't sure if this was the right way or not. TIA!

Hey, I add the jewel while the modge podge is still wet. The modge podege holds it in place and then I pour my glaze on top of it. HTH

i did it once but i dont know if i did it correctly.
Since i was just trying to figure it out myself

I added the lite on the cap and let it dry for a few minutes.
I added the bling when the lite was a little on the tacky side.(semi cured)
The rhinestone has not fallen from the cap yet.

I tried setting mine in the ET Lite once and the rhinestone kind of "embedded" into it and it took away the sparkle of the rhinestone. Now I let them fully cure and then use some E6000 on a toothpick to apply a little spot and stick the rhinestone to it. It works just fine!

Thanks ladies! I went ahead and put them on the image with my modge podge and I'm going to put the ET on top. If this doesn't work (crossing my fingers that it does), then next batch I will do my ET first and than try to add the bling to the top. I was afraid of them popping off if they are on the top, but I hadn't thought about them losing the shine if they are inside the ET. I guess I'll see how it turns out. I have a lot that I need to put my ET on that I am going to do later tonight, after the helpful hands are in bed.
