    Wonderful Blog!

    Awesome Tutorial!

  2. How do you remove the glued and epoxied charm from the bottle cap? I can think of many beautiful things to do with this project but….
    It is an awesome tutorial, BTW!

    Actually, you don’t remove it. You can use decoupage glue to cover the image on the bottle cap with paper or fabric if you want to. If you want to make resin charms without a bezel on them, you can buy silicone resin molds at craft stores or online (search for “resin jewelry molds”). It’s a similar process, except you start by pouring a thin layer of resin, let it cure most of the way, then if you want to use images, use a very small amount of resin to glue the image to the cured resin, let that set up, and add any other objects and more resin.

    I love your ideas. I have some printed ink jet pictures and instead of using modgepodge to prevent color smudging, can I laminate and put into the bottom of the bottle caps?

  5. Leah says:

    I’ve never tried laminating an image, but it seems like it would work. If you try it I’d love to hear how it turns out!

    Jody, a lot of people are using ICE resin these days – I don’t know where you can buy it at stores, but if you google it, it’s available a bunch of places online.
