Default Bottle Cap Questions

SO I think I have gotten myself in over my head here...

Is there any way to attach the bottle cap images to the bottle caps without the xerox sticker maker? I really cant spend any more money on bow stuff right now. I am using epoxy dots if that helps!

I have searched but I keep finding info on how to attach to other things when I really need to know how to attach to the bottle cap!

I used a glue stick.. However, I'm not expert on the subject. Last night was my first attempt and had all sorts of problems lol. I think my husband stirred the ET Lite too hard because it was just pure bubbles. Do you stir it slow for a few minutes?

follow the directions on the package......et lite never gets completly solid for me, I use ez cast or rio grande doming resin.

make sure before you put the resin on that you seal your image with modge podge and let it dry COMPLETELY!!!

mines gets bubbles as well
i still use it on my caps and once im done sealing all of them i take a long nose lighter and go over them & that burts all the bubbles .. i recheck withing 30-45mins again to make sure no new ones surfaced.

I use the small cheap Xyron. I also use the dots because I've been too chicken to try resin yet. I put them on regular caps, and to prevent them from being able to be pulled up, I seal the seam with Liquid Fusion.

okay I am totally lost here, I have never heard of xerox sticker machine for bottlecaps, I thought everyone glued them in I use Aleene's jewerly and metal glue after sanding the tops of the bottlecaps.

So tell me about this machine? Do you have to sand the top of the bottlecap? or does the sticker stick to metal well.

I ordered all the supplies to make bottle caps yesterday. I am hoping I don't screw them all up when they come in
