Hi..I'm looking for a resin to make bottle caps with. I'm interested in hunting down some ET Lite but so far I'm not having any luck. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. If you know of any other suitable resin I'd love to hear from you too. TIA!

Most people do not use liquid resin anymore. You can buy epoxy dots. These are like stickers you just put on top of the image.

As well as ET lite you can use Liquid glass (my preference).

Search for envirotex lite you can get it on e-bay.

The liquid glass take a few hours as it leave a good size dome. The epoxy dots are so much easier to deal with.

My dots arrived today! Had a quick play between school pick up and dinner but noticed that the dots had come up a little on the edges of the caps by bedtime. They are supposed to be excellent quality so I'm thinking I must have done something wrong. Will try again when I get a chance....
Do y0u mind sharing where you get your liquid glass?

I found with the dots no matter which ones I purchased they did not look as good as when I put liquid glass on them.

My supplier is out but search google for "aritocrat liquid glass" There are a few suppliers around.

For resin you can try www.iresin.com.au she deals with resin made jewellery, but I have spoken to her about using the resin on bottlecaps, and she said the ICE resin can be used.

She is very helpful, so ask her some questions.

Thanx Rosie!

I got myself a xyron sticker maker and the images are staying put really well with it! I'm still keen to try the resin though..I'm worried about kids trying to pull the epoxy dot caps apart.

Looks like I've got an few options now..Thanks again girls!
