Default More enivrotex questions

I made my first batch of bottlecaps with it. I followed what everyone said, spread it with my little stick, blew on them to pop the bubbles, set them aside overnight to dry.... And when I went back to look at them today, on almost every single one of them, the resin has shrunk. I promise you, I put it all the way out to the edge of the design, and now it only covers 1/3 to 1/2 on most of them. What did I do wrong and how do I fix it?

Never had that happen, so I can't help. Maybe you could go back and do the outside now??? Sorry!

Pour it over the caps! Look at my website and there is a tutorial on the left side for glazing using envirotex lite!

Hmmm, I've never seen it shrink! It must be that you just didn't use enough. Next time put a thicker coat on and be sure to spread it out very well. It take some practice to get used to using it, so don't feel bad if you have some mess ups.
