Question What type of paper do I use to print images for ...

bottle caps?? I had some old bottle caps that I bought off of ebay a while ago w/Strawberry Shortcake on them and when I went to glaze one of them, the image started to run.

I'm really starting to like this bottle cap thing and would like to make my own images. If anyone is willing to share with me, I would be very appreciative. I am not looking to sell images anywhere, I just want to learn for myself.

I'm seeing lots of cool ones on Etsy like the Barbie profile and Cat in the Hat and SSC, Princesses, etc.

Thanks for any help

Tabitha

I am having the same problem with running no matter if I have them printed some place like Walmart, Staples, etc or if I print them myself. I have tried to spray them with Krylon before I try to seal them...it didn't work either. I just got some MicroGlaze. I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it works. I have wasted so many images and I'm tired of trying to peel the images off the caps after I glaze them (some I can and some I can't). I have no clue why some people have no problem and others have all kinds of problems with running. Hope we find an answer.

You do use photo paper. Try sealing the image with Modge Podge first. I've heard people say that it doesn't run then. HTH

I have tried photo paper and regular ocpy paper. I haven't tried mod podge yet, but I do have some. Maybe I'll try that next.

I never print mine at home. I make set my images to 4 x 6 and send them to Walgreens to be made into prints. Something in how they process them into photo's stops the images from bleeding. Every paper I have tried from home ended up bleeding so I gave up with that option.
