Default Glazes for bottle caps? HELP!

I am new to making bottle caps and have done some with the image in the bottle cap using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I like it. However, it only comes in small bottles and I'm wanting something that comes in larger bottles because I use quite a bit of it.

I also want to do images on top of the caps but never tried it and want to know what I'm doing and what is best to use for it.

I've read on here that many of you use an adhesive to or make your images into stickers before doing a glaze. Is buying the $8 sticker maker easier? I imagine it becomes expensive to do that. If you adhere them, what do you use that works best?

Also, what glaze do you use? I hear all about Diamond Glaze but cannot find it anywhere at my craft stores and even online it's sold out in the larger bottles on almost every site I find or it's $20 for a 10oz. bottle. Any cheaper suggestions, or is it worth the $20?

Help!!! I'm also going to purchase the tutorial for GIMP from Amanda today to start making my own images.

ET Light is a good glaze but there is another if ya five me a second I will find it for ya. Also I use therma webbing which is in scrap booking and its a sheet of double sided sticky sheets to put images on. I just punch them out the same way I punch the images.

I use a glaze called Triple Thick on top of the images. It works great, but my craft stores locally just stopped selling it, so I need another option.
I also just use a dab of tacky glue to adhere my images onto the cap. I do like the idea of using the double sided squares from the scrapbooking section. That would work well too!

Another tip? When I first started with bottlecaps I purchased them from another crafter- she put a touch of glitter on top of the image/glaze. It just adds a nice touch. So I do that too!

Good luck-

Did you have any trouble with the Mod Podge DM cracking or causing any distortion to the image after a while? Did you print your image on paper or photo paper?

I just did some and they look great but just found out from someone else that using this Mod Podge Dimensional Magic is not good and it will be a problem in time. I want to make sure I am ok to give the bow to the customer.

Please let me know your experience was with this.

The diamond glaze is the best IMO, so I woul pay the $20 but you may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

I just ordered some other glaze that was recommended to me but I am wondering if I am safe to give the one I already made to my customer. I am not going to use it again for fear it will be a problem, but I saw some people here were using it before and I wondered if they ended up with any problems later with the product.

Diamond glaze has always worked well for me. I tried something else once (can't remember what) and didn't like it. The large bottle goes a loooooong way when making bottlecaps. Just remember it looks better if you don't get it too thick.
