Exclamation baking bottle caps help

ok so i did a search on this and nothing... i asked in a yahoo group and all i got was mixed answers that made it seem more complicated than it really is. OK so i made these bottle caps with et lite 3 nights ago, since its been raining here they havent cured completely. i gotta send these caps out asap! and they are still a lil sticky. so i know that you can bake bottle caps with et lite on them.... the lowest temp my oven goes is setting warm, next setting is 150... sooooooo can any of you lovely ladies help me out with this? what temp do i put the oven at and how long do i bake these caps at. i wanted to ship them today but i guess its not gonna happen. please help

I've had a few batches that I could never get past the "sticky" stage. It does not want to cooperate where I live either when it's cold or humid. I've not tried to bake it, though I thought the package says not recommended over 100 degrees. Have you tried putting them in front of a space heater? I just got a new resin in the mail today. You are supposed to be able to bake it at 150 and have them cured in an hour. I hope that it works. I hate doing these only to find out in 2 to 3 days that they didn't work and have to start all over again. I hope that they cure for you.

I bake all of mine...the only trouble I had was with my flat caps and baking was not a good idea from them b/c it got under the image and messed it up. I baked mine at 200 for 20 mins and then just turned the oven off and left them for an hour or so. I have baked them longer and have not had any trouble, just make sure the pan you put them on is level.

OMG I'm in California also. This weather is HORRIBLE! I will say that last week I had a batch of caps that WOULD not dry. I did put them in front of my space heater and everything. Sorry I can't help with the baking. I just want to let you know that I will send positive vibes your way that they do indeed cure for you. I redid my batch of caps (in this horrible weather) and they dried in the normal 24 hours. It very well could be that for whatever reason, they won't dry. I am hoping that isn't the case for you though. That darn resin, I swear I can make 5,000 caps not a single problem. However, give me that one order that has to go right and be perfect and never fails it goes all wrong. I sympathize with you completly!

It is called Colores Doming Resin. It came highly recommended by another HG member. I just got it today, so I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. It was a little pricey, close to $30 with shipping. But if it works, it will be well worth it to avoid the headaches I suffer with the ET! Plus the bottles are big and will do many, many tiles and caps. Here's the link:

I put mine in the oven after I warm it up & leave them over night with the oven off. If they are still sticky at this time you may have been off a bit on the resin measurements or it didn't get mixed well. I have had this happen a few times. I would suggest at this point to mix another batch of resin & put a new light layer over the top. Once they are degassed & ready to dry put them in a warm oven & turn it off & leave them over night. I have been able to salvage caps that wouldn't cure completely doing this several times.
