I put a bit in the bottle cap, put the paper and things down, press a bit, then fill in the rest with more of the lacquer. Press down on it to release air bubbles…poke them with a needle. It dries overnight, but I prefer to wait 48 hours.

Also, hot glue won’t last for the magnet. I prefer the gel type of super glue…it sets quickly and doesn’t run all over.

Good luck!

Used them alot. Just don’t let the Mod Podge product get too old. Whatever you do, don’t shake either product. Squeeze a couple of drops on a piece of scrap paper and then do your bottle cap. I like to start from the center and work my way out and almost fill the cap. If you get bubbles, take a pin and move them to the side. It takes about 24 hours to dry. I have never moved things around, so I can’t help you there. I always use Mod Podge Matte on the inside of the cap, under the circle of paper and press to get it to stick. When that dries in about 15 min., I put a layer of Mod Podge on the top side of the circle of paper. I would suggest you decoupage your little decorations to the paper, also. Let that all dry for about an hour and then do your Dimensional Magic or Glossy Accents. If you pour slowly you have less chance of bubbles. Store your bottle of product right side up at all times. Trust me, it works. I’ve made necklaces by drilling holes in the top of the cap and insert a bead chain through the holes. And make magnets. It’s always a fun project. Glossy comes out a little bit clearer than the Dimensional Magic. Go for it and have fun.

I just started making these (in the experimental stages) and sometime I find the paper I use inside gets blotchy and discolored etc after I put the resin in. sometimes I use glue behind it and sometimes I don’t……would it be the resin I am using or the glue behind it? Does it matter which kind of paper you use? I am using some sort of very stinky plastic resin I bought that you mix with a ‘catalyst’………cannot find Diamond Glaze to save my life……..heard so many reviews on different resins that I am not even certain still which one to use. I also found that if you put pressure on your magnet inside a few times….the resin shape pops right out. UGH. Help?

Mod Podge works great, can be bought at craft stores. My bottle says mod podge dimensional magic. On the back of packaging there are pictures of – tada – bottlecap magnets!

No mixing.. but pricey-6-8.00
Less stinky and you can paint it on or pour inside bottle caps.

I call it pouring glass: it is easy to use although children will need supervision.
I have made tables and embedded all sorts of things with this stuff.
Good Luck

Diamond Glaze takes about 1hour to dry and the result is wonderful. Try it!

It takes about 30 hrs to dry completely but worked like a charm!

Got the idea off someone’s else’s blog. Good job on your project. I was just checking out blog’s to see what other people where doing design wise. Oh, and I bought my at Jo Ann’s Craft store for under $5 if I remember right.

I have been wanting to make these with my kids for some time. I was going to use a Modge Podge product called Dimensional Magic. I used it on bezel jewelery pieces (over photos) and it works well.

The resin stays nice and clear for a very long time.

It’s great for kid projects like yours.
