Default Help - 3d Crystal lacquer

Today I worked an outdoor fair where I was selling my bottle cap necklaces. For my caps, I typically use E6000 to glue in my images, then I use the Sakura 3d crystal lacquer which has been great for my caps up until today.

The weather was a bit chilly and rainy. I do not think my caps got wet but all of a sudden I started noticing on a bunch of them what looked like white bubbles as though the lacquer was wet again. Touching it, it was dry but it was all over a bunch of the caps.

Has this ever happened to anyone and if so, how do I fix it so it doesn't happen again?

Thanks.

I'm not sure there's anyway you an fix it. I recommend using ET Lite. It's much more durable and you won't have to worry about the weather.

Thanks. I did a search on Google for ET Lite and couldn't find it. Any suggestions? Does it work the same way? I make my bottle caps on the inside not outside as many people do. Thanks!

Sorry, it's called Envirotex Lite. You can get it at most craft stores.

It's a two part resin. You mix it, pour, and then remove the bubbles with a lighter. It does take a lot longer to dry. I usually like to wait 3 days.

Its definately your resin. 3D lacquer and some of the other ones have a high tendancy to act up in heat, humidity, rain, moisture etc. There have been horror stories of the resin actually melting off of necklaces and onto customers skin. Envirotex Lite is a little trickier to work with but once you get used to it - you'll never go back. It's an awesome product and definately worth learning how to use! You can buy it at Michaels with a coupon!

Thanks for the info..bummer considering i just bought online an 18 oz container of the crystal lacquer but I guess not worth taking a chance.

When I mix the resin, can I do the whole kit at once and will it stay as a liquid for a long time or do I just mix the amt needed each time.

You just mix up as much as you can use right away. It will harden up on you if you let it sit. Just make small batches and be sure to measure it carefully and mix it very well.
