To make a bottle cap image, make a stencil of a bottle cap, use the stencil to cut out an image, glue the image inside the cap, add clear casting resin, and attach a magnet to the cap. You need a bottle cap, tracing paper, a pencil, scissors, an image, glue, resin, a magnet, sandpaper, a spoon and a bowl.
- Make a stencil
Lay a bottle cap on a flat surface with the inside facing up. Press a small sheet of tracing paper into the cap. Trace the perimeter of the cap, and cut out the stencil.
- Cut out the image
Lay the tracing paper onto your chosen image, and cut out the image using the stencil.
- Glue the image to the bottle cap
Apply glue to the inside of the bottle cap and the back of the image. Press the glued surfaces together.
- Mix and apply resin
Mix a small amount of clear casting resin, and pour it into the bottle cap. Give the resin two days to dry.
- Mount the magnet
Sand the back of the bottle cap until the surface is slightly rough. Set the cap on your work surface with the back facing up, and apply a thin layer of glue. Press a small circular magnet onto the glue, and let the glue harden for several hours.
