Default Bottlecap questions!!

I am wanting to start making bottlecaps. But, I have no clue where to start! What do you glue your images to the cap with? Also, what do you use on the top? Like what resin? Thank you for any advice that can be given!

I use epoxy stickers that are 1" on the top. I use 3D crystal laquer or diamond glaze to seal them with( make sure that you dont shake to sealer to prevent bubbles.). you use deco podge to glue the images down to the top od the bottle cap. make sure that you have a 1" scrapbook punch. I hope that this makes sence.

I use dot liner glue and epoxy. I don't seal my images because I have them printed at Walgreens.

Can I ask what dot liner glue is? Either I never heard of it or I'm being totally clueless right now LOL

If you search "how to make bottlecaps" on here, you should get a lot of info. But in a nutshell: You want to invest in a Xyron sticker machine (get one at Michaels - they're cheaper than Joanns) with a 40% off coupon. It makes life so much easier for adhering the image to the cap. 1" circle punch. A GOOD quality bottlecap punch - if you're making necklaces. ET Lite OR Colores Doming Resin. I personally have not glazed my images yet - it's on the list, but those 2 are the most recommended. You can buy or make your own images. There are several that selll images on here. Glazing will be your biggest challenge ... the rest is a piece of cake.

It rolls on and there are little dots of glue all over the ribbon. Awesome stuff, holds like super glue. It is made from Elmer's and I got mine at the Mighty dollar for a buck . I stocked up because they may not get anymore. It is $3-$4 at Wal-Mart. I love that store they get things from Hallmark, Oriental Trading, and all kinds of places. They have the best scrapbooking things for $1.
