I would like to know as well. All of my images have been printed at either Walgreens or Rite Aid.

well if you use the glossy print from there then you don't need to coat the tops but you still need to coat the edges or you will get the oiley look

My question...I made my first batch, and it's been a couple of days since I did the ET...But, it looks like I didn't use enough of it. Can I apply more ET to the finished caps? I have a nice glaze on the middle of the caps, but the outer edges have nothing!!

Also, how long do you normally spend blowing out the bubbles? I only watched them for 30 minutes or so, but they still ended up with bubbles.

They are fun, and relatively easy to make, but there are a lot of steps to them!!

yea just apply right over it, and i don't blow my bubbles out i use a lighter over them and it pops them, also i have heard of using a heat embosser to pop the bubbles, i haven't tried that yet but will on my next batch of caps =)

You guys are making me a nervous Nelly about using the ET Lite ... I guess if they fail, then I'll be ordering the Colores Resin Doming ...
