Default How do i make bottle caps?!?

Before i bought the materials, i did a lot of research online as to how to make bottle caps..
I bought many painted bottle caps and i bought 3d crystal lacquer, i learned how to make my own images, and i print them on photo paper.
i then use the one inch hole punch to punch the images out, and use a glue stick to glue them onto the bottle caps. i then use the 3d crystal lacquer (using the applicator tip) to cover the image in the lacquer.
I let it dry overnight.
When i go to my bottle caps in the morning, the images aren't the same! they've become blurry as if they've gotten wet.
What am i doing wrong here?
i tried using a very minimal amount of 3d crystal lacquer this time around and the images have still come out runny!

Any help on this is greatly appreciated!
I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate on this site BTW.. haven't had time to play around with it yet!

Just started the bottlecaps and tiles myself...do you still use the crystal lacquer over the modge podge? and what about those epoxy seals, are they any good?

You need to seal your images like stated above. If I'm doing a lot of images at once I use clear spray paint...Do one side and let it sit a few minutes then flip and do the other. I try and do them before I cut them out. Goes much quicker that way. If I'm just doing a few at a time I stick with ModgePodge. HTH

Ditto to what the others said. I also use Microglaze before I modge podge the images. That seems to help the images not to run also.

Oh and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the epoxy dots! So much quicker and less mess!

Thanks for all your answers! i will have to get some modge podge... do they sell it at walmart?
The reason i chose not to use epoxy dots is because i bought some bottle caps from someone online, and she used epoxy dots.
i didn't like how the paper looked like it was coming up on the sides and could be torn off.

I don't seal my images and they never run. I get mine printed at walgreens, can usually print them for 10-19 cents for a 4x6 depending if there is a sale or not. I find this a lot easier than printing at home on my own (where my BRAND NEW printer always messes something up). Use high quality photo paper and you will be fine. Also I worry about the glue stick not being strong enough to hold the image to the cap, I use the xyron sticker maker like a lot of other ladies here and it works wonderfully.
