Default Epoxy Resin Domes

I ordered these from here...

http://www.etsy.com/shop/Bottlecapsrus

I got 50 clear and 50 glitter and at first I messed some up but then got the hang of putting them on. BUT if you pull on it a little it makes the whole image come off the bottle cap! Do they all do this? And when I put them into little zip lock baggies that fit 2 bottle caps in to store them, when I try to take them out they are really hard to get out because they "stick" to the plastic but it doesnt ruin the image. Its just hard to get out. I was just wondering if all of these do this or just these kind that I bought. I would really like to find some that work because I made 100 bottle caps in just a few minutes!! Thanks!

I had some of these once (not from that seller FYI but from another place) and after a a week the edge of the dome popped off the edge of the cap...

do these not do this?

I have had no luck with any type of epoxy/resin/whatever drop.

I checked with coleycole (bought some of her resin drops) and she suggested using the Xyron sticker maker. Made a bunch for my daughter's class last night and they stuck pretty good. I put them on flattened caps - not sure if that makes a difference. BTW I love the glitter drops! I'm tempted to buy some

IMHO the resin/epoxy domes suck ass. Maybe it's the humidity here in western KY. IDK.

Okay maybe the Xyron isn't the best. I had a couple extra clips made from Tuesday night and checked them this morning - the edges are lifting. Not a lot but they have separated from the bottlecap. I'm *hoping* they don't lift further - my dd gave out 21 caps to her class. Maybe I didn't smash the images down enough before appying the drops? I'm trying another cap with E6000 so hopefully it will hold better. I really like the convenience of these and am crossing my fingers something will work!

Please keep me posted!! I was really wanting to try those from coleycole, but was waiting to get people's thoughts on them first! I just ordered a bunch of bottlecaps so I will be really bummed if they don't work b/c I wanted to purchase those poly resin drops to use. I have the ET lite, but really resistant to use it b/c of it messing up the caps by causing bubbles. And since i've heard that the diamond glaze will ruin if it gets wet, I didn't want to use that either. I've never bottlecaps before, so looking for something good to use that won't mess them up!
