Thumbs up Wayyyy easier than epoxy!!

I do the bottlecaps as well as some other bow centers. I was told to try Krylon triple thick glaze and boy does it work!!! It;s in a spray can, i spray, wait about 10 minutes, spray again and in 2-3 hours they are ready to go. Just thought i would share, they are crystal clear when they are done too!

Walmart with all the spray paint. It was 2.65 a can or something? I've done probably 30 bow centers and i still have 3/4 of a can left.

Is it sticky, like spray adhesive. or messy? How long does it take to dry. I jus ttried the 2 part resin and love it. However, it takes a lot of time and forever to dry.

It's not sticky when it's dry and it only takes a few hours, my last batch i was using them in about 3 hours. Not messy either, i do mine in our art room with the window cracked. I use an old cookie sheet, put a few sheets of newspaper over it and go to town :-)

Here are some pics, these arent kids bows, these are for adults so they arent as cute and bright as what you all make :-) It's hard to see how shiny they are, i cut the glare down on my computer so the pics would be better, they look like glass.

Actually, it gets easier :-) I use mailing labels...the big ones, print them on there and stick them to the bottlecap or circles i'm using. No glue, no sealer, just the glaze :-) And the mailing labels look just as nice as the photo paper :-)
