Default A really big question about bottle caps and epoxy

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bottle Caps!
originally, I was making them with a sticker maker, sticking them to the bottle caps, then putting epoxy dots over the top,
well i thought this worked,
HOWEVER the first time my baby got hers wet, water leaked into the image and ruined it! (I was also using regular printer paper might i add)
Well I have switched it up, and started printing my images on photo paper

So my question now is,
I have all this stuff laying around my house,
mod podge, the matte and glossy stuff,
I LOVE the way the epoxy sticker dome looks on the bottle cap,
it looks very professional and "finished"
well I also have this stuff called "epoxy resin glue"
its a 2 tube system, so my QUESTION IS
how can i seal my image, to make it water proof? and is there a way to get that professional dome look with this epoxy glue?

Thanks so much

I've seen both kinds at all sorts of craft shows, etc. IMO the ones with the sticker dome on top never look as clear and as nice as the ones where resin was actually poured. Besides you can't add in rhinestones and other things with sticker domes.

I only use the resin drops when I have an order that is needed asap. never for shows. I use a 2 part resin and love it. One of mine did go through the wash, but came out totally fine. I would not recommend it however. They will always be water resistant but never waterproof.

I don't think anything will make them waterproof. I use ET lite & it has been ok when they have been out playing in the water but since they don't seal all the way around the edge & down the cap water could still get in there.
I slee all mine with the disclaimer that they are not waterproof & to take them off before bathing & swimming etc...
