Default Can i see a side pic of a finished bottle cap

I want to make sure im making my bottle caps correctly i dont know if i need to put my resin on the edge of the bottle cap or not. ive been using the doming resin from rio grande and i love it but its been just on the top and you can see the paper on the side.

when you put the image on the top of the cap, make sure when you modge podge the top, you get it around the edged and stick the image to the sides

I'm not sure how to put a picture here but I would recommend getting some of the reson on the sides. I never used to do that but now I do (I use a cheap paintbrush) and they look more finished and stay put better. I had some that I had bought on my bows and my 2 y/o just pulled off the image the other day. I don't think she could have did that if the resin was over the sides.

Allison I cut my images with the 1" punch and use regular bottlecaps but my images don`t get to the edge of the bottlecap you can still see a very tiny rim of the bottlecap surrounding the image so no matter how much I modge podge the image to the cap I still have to pour more resin so it spills around the image but then it spills around the edge of the caps too...I thought I was doing mines wrong since they are my first try but now I see I am not the only one having this issue..i am afraid that if I don`t spill the resin images may be peeled off.

I made my first set of bottlecaps too and have the same issue. I guess I need to get a paintbrush also.

Pat, try a little less resin and the modge podge, I run the modge podge down the side and let it dry, then when I put the resin on, I use a toothpick to put it on around the sides, put a small drop in the middle and then use the toothpick to push it around the rest of the cap. I dont have any finished ones on hand right now, but will take pics of how I do it when I do my next batch this weekend

when you modge podge over the image, just modge podge down the side of the cap sometimes I have to hold the image down for a few seconds.

Make sure the image is 100% dry and stuck (if you use modge podge to stick it to the cap then 100% dry for like 15-20 minutes) If you are using the sticker machine, I stick mine down really good and make sure I press around the edges and then I dont seal over the top with modge podge for a couple days so the image is stuck

Also, make sure if you are using a sticker machine, that you have PERMANENT sticker paper in it.
