Default I need some bottle cap help

Okay I am having some problems with my bottlecaps. What do you put on the image so that the ink does not run? I have been using clear nail polish and then diamond glaze on top of that. My problem is after time they turn yellow. I have heard that the diamond glaze does that. Well I was thinking that if you paint your nails with clear polish and leave it on there forever it seems to turn your nails a yellow color. Do you think that could be my problem instead of the diamond glaze? I really am getting tired of working on all these caps and then having to chunk them cause they are not good quality a month later. Please help me! I am desperate. LOL ready to just give up on them.

I use ET Lite as my resin. I don't use anything over the image to keep it from running. The only problem that I have had is when I use cheap photo paper. As long as I'm using premium photo paper it has never smeared and never turned yellow. I like ET Lite because it is durable. I sell my bottlecaps as keychains also and I need them to be able to take a beating!

Okay thanks for the advice. I will keep trying. This will drive you crazy. I was about to the point of not doing them at all. Thanks again.

I only use epoxy dots. No problems and no yellowing for me.

I just bought some of the epoxy dots but some don't lay flat? Should I lay something heavy on the bottle caps once I put the dots on there and maybe it will stick?

are poly resin dots & epoxy dots the same thing? do you glue these down? im getting tired of using laquer....doesnt look clean. i could be doing something wrong but i want a clean look for my bottle caps. something easy would be nice. im just scared of buying these "dots" and than have problems of not sticking.
