Q: How did u get the images? Did you choose one and then tell Walgreens the diameter u wanted. Please help cuz i dont understand.
Q: I would also like to know where you got the images for your bottle caps.
A: Please check out the new tutorial just posted: Free Instructions--How To Edit Bottle Cap Images
Suggestion: These are great instructions. I have never used Diamond Glaze, but use E Lite. If you will use a lighter and carefully go over the bottlecap, the bubbles will pop. I do this about every 30 min. It works great!!!! Hope this helps with your bubbles.
A: Thank you very much. I heard that exhale (not blow) on caps, the bubbles will pop. But never tried it.
Suggestion: The best, fastest, easiest and for more professional looking bottle caps you should always seal with hard epoxy bubbles, found on ebay, just search "epoxy bubbles". It isn't the cheapest way, but it is no fail.
A: Thank you. I've never tried them. Here is the discussion on our forum about the epoxy bubbles: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/supplies/38557-epoxy-bubbles-bottle-caps-badge-reels.html
Q: My question is... When I am doing these (diamond glaze) my picture colors are running.
And on some images they are coming out blurry. Should I be printing the images on regular paper, glossy photo paper or matte photo paper? Thanks for your help! (great site by the way!!!)
A: Thank you for the nice comments. Diamond glaze is water based. The ink will blend into it. I had the same problem before. Now I send the image file to walgreens.com and have them develop the photo. It'll solve the problem. Plus, the cost of the photo paper and ink is not cheap :)
Q: I went through your steps on printing an image for bottle caps and it worked, but my images were fuzzy because I copied them off line from pictures yahoo brought up. I put in Patriots logo and copied a picture yahoo pulled up followed the steps and everything was great except it was fuzzy. Where do you get your images from?
I guess the resolution of the image you used is too low. Resolution (dpi) means how many dots (pixels) per inch. We recommend using images with dpi > 72. To check the image Resolution (dpi), Please follow the step 3 & 4 in the tutorial.
