I *think* you aren't supposed to mod podge when using the drops. I could be wrong though.

I use the resin drops, and I put them on the image FIRST. It takes me a bit of smoothing to get it to adhere well over the entire image - I put the drop and image in a cloth (usually my sleeve ) and press and smooth for a minute.

Then I stick the image onto the cap, and I usually use Aileens glue, I forget the exact one.

Voila!

Hi! Should I be using photo paper or not when printing the images? They seem to stick a bit better using fabric and putting the resin drop on the image first.

I get all my images printed off at Walmart. I take each bottlecap and wipe them down with alcohol to get any residue off. Punch out my image and send it through my Xyron to make the image a sticker. Then place the image on the bottlecap. Press it really good to make sure there are no air bubbles. Then I place my resin drop on top. I take a cloth and place it over the resin drop and rock my finger back and forth to make sure its on good and no air bubbles. And just to be completely sure, i'll take a little Liquid Fusion around the edges where the resin drop and bottle cap meet just to make sure the resin drops are on there good! HTH

To start I clean the bottlecaps with alcohol, wipe them again, then I use tacky glue to glue on photo image to cap, I let it dry overnite, then I apply the drop. For every 50 I make, I may have 1 that does not stick. I love the resin drops. I get my drops from one of the ladies on here. Also I get the dog tag and scrabble drops. They work great!

It seems like I have air pockets or something. Part of the image is really clear but other parts not so much. I'll try some of these tips.
