Thanks for your answer. I have a question, some people as you say that epoxy dots come off, but, I canīt explain how many people buy and use them... I am affraid because I almost buy from China... How can I do????
By the way, do you make the hole after the resin? Would you mind to share your resin bottle caps here???

This is all I use. It's a pain but I think it gives it a more finished look. Also, you don't have to worry about getting the bottlecap wet.

I get all my images from etsy. I rint them on matte or glossy paper. I print them using walmart (the best), walgreens, etc. My printer just doesn't get the same quality. If you use these places, you don't have to coat the paper with anything. I use adhesive paper on the back of the image to glue it to the bottle cap and coat with the resin. I will post some picture when I can.

Let me tell you ladies, yesterday I was trying to paste a image on the top of a bottle cap. I use 6 diferent glues:
1. Glue for paste sequins on clothes. ( it works )
2. Glue for decoupage ( doesn`t work )
3. UHU glue ( doesnīt work )
4. Diamond finish, is not a glue, but I try and it works VERY WELL! I find this imagen from internet
( http://www.arteypintura.com.co/uploa...d%20finish.JPG) Varathane brand, made in USA
5. Mod podge, the orange with yellow bottle ( doesnīt work )
6. A glue for decoupage ( doesnīt work )
So I am thinking I will going to use Diamond finish as my glue. It is imposible to try to take off the imagen from the bottle cap.
Big hugh!

I think is this one, I have just the little bottle, but I think is this one:

As per my perception it is really hard to make bottle cap hairs.
