Default Re: bottle cap issues

I think I solved the issue! Okay first the hole puncher gave it a weird bigger edge, next the photo paper I used was too stiff...it was that super high gloss stuff...I used just regular photo paper modge podged the back and stuck it to the cap with no problemos...well now I have a new issue lol...when finishing the cap I used that 2 part resin (the kind that looks like a double syringe and then you mix) as soon as I start using it it comes out wonderfully but within a time span of about 6 minutes its a big gross pile of gunk (not the caps, the mixed solution I'm using to top the caps off) and it ruins the brush I'm. Using to brush the caps lol...any suggestions on how to fix this? Or maybe a alternate coating that looks just as great as the 2 part resin??

if your using etlite then you need to mix it very well, when you think you have mixed it enough, mix more, i use a popsicle stick to mix and apply.

Lol ok I figured out what was wrong with my resin...it was like 5 minute quick set epoxy resin lol.soooo went to get me some et lite, some of my caps look weird, some of them look amazing but I expected this because ths is my first try without those plastic dome stickers! So here's my next question howww would you mount this to a bow since the backside is hollow?

I have done a few different ways. You can use one of those little felt disks like you put on the bottom of chair legs. Glue those in & then glue to the bow. I have also done it by putting my center ribbon across the inside of the cap & glueing it there & put a button over it & glue it again. Then I attach it to the bow.
