Default Why am I not getting this??

I finally have everything to make my own bottle caps. I went to glue the image/epoxy onto the cap with E6000 and it is not working!! It is lifting from the cap. What am I doing wrong?? Should I be using a different glue?

Try a Xyron sticker machine. It's the "X" shaped one, and make sure you use the permanent adhesive tape. HTH

I stick my images to the cap using white plain elmers glue then give them two coats of it on top and then cover them with resin

I use an Xyron sticker maker, but you can also you ModPodge. Use a brush and brush the top of your bottlecap, put on the image, then put another coat on top of the image. Don't worry about brushmarks, you won't see them once you put the resin on.

I use E600. I put the glue in the center of the image and push it down the beat i can, then I use one of those clip magnetic and leave it over night.
The one I use has a round tip ( where you would put papers) It takes up most of the bottle cap top. Make sure to clean up the glue that may spill over the edges.

I've never had any issues with my images lifting or coming off.

I usually let E6000 sit for a few minutes before attaching it together. This seem to work for me.

Thanks! I think this is what I might have to do! Or maybe I was just using too much glue??

I use a xyron to attach the image to the cap, it works great and I have never had them lift. E6000 should work as well, I think a little goes a long way.

Xyron thingy is super easy and has never lifted for me. I will punch a whole bunch of circles and then run them all through leaving as little space between as I can. Then I stick and am ready to go. No waiting overnight for glue to dry.
