Question Flattening bottlecaps ?

Is there a way to flatten the colored bottle cap so that the color is showing? OR will the inside of the bottle cap ALWAYS be the finished side?

I don't buy colored bottle caps but I paint the outside rim and glue the image to the back side of the bottle cap. If you glued it on the back side the color would show. Here is a pic.

Thank you for the picture. I have a TON of colored caps and hate that they won't show. What product do you use to 'fill' the bottle cap? I am using exposy stickers for the unflattened caps.

I use ET Lite resin. I use a plastic knife to get it down in the grooves to seal the image and the paint.
