To those of you that have received these "melted" together bottlecaps, do you have any idea what kind of resin the person who made them is using? When I first started making bottlecaps I tried many different types of glazes/resins and I had no luck with any of them. No matter how long I let them dry it never seemed to get hard enough. I would let them sit for days and you could still get a finger imprint smudge or whatever. Very frustrating! Then I finally found the ET lite that I had heard everyone talking about. The resin dries to a very clear shiny hard surface and it should not melt or stick or do any of those things you all are describing. It's definitely a lot trickier to work with than some of the other resins, but I think it's definitely worth it! The caps turn out so much better! The shine lasts forever. And I have never had a problem with them sticking together (as long as you let them dry thoroughly!) I would just suggest next time when ordering caps find out what they are using to seal them
I agree with amy, I sell tons of caps and usually when I ship them i put 2 to a bag and then I take a piece of cardboard and tape the bag flat to the cardboard. I use ET Lite and have never had a problem. I also have done grab bags and just thrown them in a bag and they are delivered fine. I think it has more to do with the fact they are using a glaze and not resin. Or the caps are not fully cured or the mix wasn't exactly the way it should be.

ET Lite or Colores are about the only 2 I know of that will dry to a glass like finish.

Also there is a difference in print quality, I can tell a difference from Sam's to Walgreens. I mostly use Walgreens or Arts Cow has really great quality prints as well.

HTH, Becky

I'm making a note of these suggestions in case I ever try making bottle caps.

Thanks
