Default question about glazing/epoxy on bottle caps :)

Okay so I'm still new to the epoxy on the bottle cap thing (before I was just using the domes) well my question is, what do y'all use to put the glaze Or epoxy on the bottle cap? Do you use a paint brush? Or a dropper or what? I've been using a cheap paint brush but it ruins the brush for me always (because it hardens and sticks to the bristles)

Tyia!

I use syringes without a needle. That way I can measure the right amount every time and it doesn't spill over. I mix it in little disposable plastic cups with measurements on them (like medicine cups).

I use little plastic cups from walmart, they're in the isle with the paper plates. Then i bought some plastic spoons and popsicle sticks. Measure with the spoon and then mix with the stick. I also put the resin on with the stick. I get to throw everything away after i'm done. I've tried washing a spoon after using resin on it and it's a sticky slimmy mess LOL.

i use the medicine syringes that they sell in the drug store for children. it works great you can clean it afterwards with alcohol so you can use it several times.
