Question Making my 1st bottle cap RIGHT NOW ...

before I get too caught up in this ... do I put the Mod Podge all over the image and cap or just underneath the image and stick it to the cap.

Thanks girls

Tabitha

so I don't put the MP all over the image ... just underneath it?

I think I got it ... just underneath first to stick it and then all over to seal it ... stick-n-seal!! LOL How long do I wait in between each?

your gonna want to let the mp completley dry, i use a xyron sticker maker with permanent adhesive cause i found that my images were lifting on the edges and now they dont do that then i add a coat of mp to the top and around the edge of the image

I am also new to bottle caps, If I make mine this way, does that mean that I don't have to use diamond glaze or any of the other 'sealers' people talk about...Just stick it down with the xyon and then seal with modgepodge and done? If so, I could get started now???

(Sorry, I didn't mean to take over your thread, it was supposed to be a quick question....I better just stop talking now)

no you will still need a sealer, the modgepodge is not water proof, i use etlite but there is also a new one out there colors doming resin or something like that i haven't tried it yet, i have used diamond glaze and still have a 1/2 bottle left but will probally never use it cause i had tooo many troubles with bubbles!!!

I keep hearing that if you are printing your own images you need to seal with the MP. If you are using Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc. you don't need to seal. Anyone?
