Default Bottlecap question!!!

I have an order for a bottlecap bow - the problem is the buyer does not want a sticker on the bottlecap - she wants a letter. I do not make my bottlecaps - I just bought the Ariel & Cindrella bottlecaps. I was thinking about painting the letter. Would this work? And would I still have to seal it? If so, what do I need to seal it? I think the bottlecap with a letter on it will be adorable but I just do not know where to get started. Any help would be wonderful! Thanks in advance!!!

If you are going to paint a letter you will have to seal it or else it will chip off. I do A LOT of painting and have learned that over the years after numerous mistrials. You can use a spray sealant, I usually use folkart's brand as it seems to be better than the others in my opinion. HTH...

If you check the scrapbooking section they have some beautiful letter stickers - some are almost a bit bubbled, really pretty fonts, too! They would work well as a monogram. If you seal them with a bit of 2-part epoxy they'll look wonderful, I'm sure
