Default Help! Bottlecap issues!!!

Ladies,

I just made a few bottlecaps and I have a question. I have no problems with the flattened bottlecaps, just fill them up! The trouble I am having is with the regular caps. When I put the resin on, it seem to just sit on the top and not cover the edges of the bottlecap. The edges seem to be a little bit bigger than the bottlecap. I use the 1" punch. Do I use a brush to get the edges?

Thanks, Sue

I never use to use a brush but the I heard people saying they did it so I tried and liked the outcome better. I just use a cheap paintbrush to coat the outside edge. Then I apply the resin with a squeeze bottle to the rest of the bottle cap. Using a squeeze bottle also lets you get the edge closer then just dripping it on. HTH!

it really should just sit on the top in a dome - if it goes over the edge and drips down the sides you will have a big mess on your hands!

So you use the squeeze bottle and throw it out? Where do you get the bottle? I heard some people use a syringe.

I got the dome on top but it didn't quite cover the edge of the image. I am afraid if it doesn't cover, it will peel or get something underneath the image.

I got the bottles at Michaels in the cake decorating stuff. I can use the same one a few times with a little work. When I'm done I take off the cap and turn both upside down to drain the resin out. Then after it dries I can pull what little resin is left out almost like a little sheet of resin. The bottle does start to break down after a few times but you can feel the difference.
