Default How to add Bottle Cap Bling

I want to add some bling to my bottle caps. What do I use and what size do you recommend? Do I use rhinestones or crystals? I want a real shine. I love this etsy sellers bottle cap items:

and these beads...love love it!

yes, I just add the rhinestones to the wet glaze and let dry. I have put more glaze on after adding the rhinestone too.

The picture you linked to is using Swarovski crystals. Rhinestones do not shine like the Swarovski.

So cute! I had been wondering if you just placed it in the wet glaze too. How does she add that gleem to the rhinestones in her pictures?

Let your resin set a little before you add your gem. I think gleem is from the flash on the carmer.

I do this You use a special plier that can be bought at any hardware store to make the holes then you apply any charms you want and also i place my rhinestones on immediately after putting on the glaze (she used real crystals i buy mine wholesale through artbeads.com) don't apply more glaze on them it clouds the stone and makes it not as sparkly Hope this helps!
