Default Sticky bottlecaps

I ordered some bottlecaps on ebay with a design on them. I was going to attach them to my bows for my daughters bday. They came yesterday 6 in little plastic baggies (in a packaging box). I finally got a chance to take them out today and they feel a bit sticky. I carefully put my nail if a corner of one of the bottle caps and it left my nail indention. Plus if I turn them in certain angles I see the glaze kind of dripped, I hope that makes sense. Before pulling them out of the baggie I was happy but now I'm not so sure. I left them out in the open hoping maybe they haven't dried well yet???? Not sure. Anyone who does bottlecaps, can you tell me what went wrong with these? Will they dry if I leave them out and lose that sticky feel to them? I can't complain because i already left a positive feedback for them on Ebay, plus I really need them for this Saturday.

It sounds like they didn't finish curing. If it was humid when the maker made them they might never get all the way hard. I would contact the maker and let them know. Depending on what they used resin wise they may be able to tell you something else to try. That stinks it happened to you. I had a few bad experiences and thats why I started making my own.

Yes it didn't cure properly but I'm thinking they didn't mix them right.
