I'd love to see this done. I don't have this kind of resin but I get bubbles with EVERYTHING I've tried so far. I also get blurry, running images no matter where I get my images printed or if I do them at home...I even ordered the MircoGlaze. I think I am not supposed to make bottle caps But I'm going to try it again LOL...I just don't give up easily...I must have 3 or 4 kinds of glaze/resin stuff sitting in my craft room and I can't tell you how many caps I've ruined with blurry/runny images...but I keep climbing back on that horse

I just got 400 bottle caps to start trying to make some. I know a lot of people put their images inside and not on the top (specially if they do magnetic jewelry); however, I really like how they look on the top. I was wondering what to use to make sure it didn't run. Where do you buy your resin? I know some people has bought it in etsy.
Thanks for the tips

Are you sealing your images with modge podge BEFORE resining them?

this is the ONLY thing I have gotten that worked, dries hard and domes high

I don't supposed you'd want to do a group buy on the doming resin, would you Allison? I am thinking of doing one myself possibly--since it SHOULD be an easy one, right? lol Is ANY GB ever easy . I don't envy you gals who run them!!

You might do a search for this. There is someone on here who occasionally does group buys for this. She lives in the same town as Rio and does local pick-up, so saves on the initial shipping.

Do they only sell it in 8 oz bottles? I looked and looked and cant' find any bigger bottles. 8 ounces will not get me very far lol. Not the way I make caps. I will have to order like 10 bottles just by myself.

Yup, I've tried the Mod Podge (MicroGlaze, Krylon Matte spray, cheap clear spray, varnish that I use in my acrylic painting) good photo paper cheap photo paper, regular printer paper, printing at home, Walmart, and other places like CVS and Staples...we don't have a Walgreens ...I've tried everything known to woman I think I'm just bottle cap challanged Actually I have not tried the Rio Doming Resin...I guess that will be the next thing I order...I hope that is not going to be sitting on my shelf with the growing collection of glazes and resins.

I use this stuff as well, and SWEAR by it!!!! It is soooooo much better than ET - I always had bubbles, etc. It was awful!!! I love Rio Grande/ I think it only does come in 8oz. bottles, but that is double the size of the small bottles of the ET rom HL or wherever. They come in 4oz. bottles. LOVE the stuff!!!!!!!! Hard as glass and crystal clear! AND - non -toxic after it dries!
