Default Bottle caps?

Can someone direct me to a thread that explains how to make the bottle caps please. I would like to know what the process is.
A free tutorial would be great but but I would pay for one if thats all there is.
I have no idea how to make them & would like to learn.
Thankyou

I use a xyron sticker maker (permanent) to adhere my images to the cap. After I put the image on I let it sit for a few hours.

You can buy resin tops on Etsy if you want to go that way. I use envirotex lite for my resin. Most craft stores have it. You also need plastic cups to mix it in. Start with a small amount of resin. I used the lids for the bottles. Mix equal parts very well and pour a small amount on the cap. I use a squeeze bottle to apply mine that I got by the cake decorating stuff. Some people use Popsicle sticks. Once you get better and faster you can mix more resin to do more caps. It needs to sit for a couple of day before it is cured. After the first day it should be dry but soft. Hope that gets you started off- it's kinda a learn as you go process in what will work best for you.

I bought amandas tut and its fairly easy to make your own pics and cutting them out is even easier.....then comes the hard part the envirotex lite!!! I have been working with that stuff on a daily basis and it is hard for me to get all the bubbles out but I am not giving up! I love the way they look so I will keep trying till I get it perfect. GOOD LUCK!! lol

I started a thread asking about the resin called Colores Doming Resin. Do a search for it...it has at least 3 women explaining how to use the product. I used it myself for the first time today. It is amazing. It makes beautiful caps with a pretty dome of plastic on top...and no bubbles. Also, it only took a few hours. A couple of hours of checking hourly for bubbles and then an hour in a 150 degree oven. It's a little pricey (about 30 dollars), but I think I'll be able to do over 600 caps with it. Good stuff!
