Step 4: Seal It With Mod Podge.

Most of the bottlecap badges I've seen seal their image with a thin layer of resin. It makes for a very nice effect and you can embed other items over your image, but it does take longer to dry and involves fumes even more noxious than those of Mod Podge. I like it this way--it's faster and the image will still stay in there. If you want to try the resin technique, there's a great tutorial here.

The Mod Podge will dry clear and relatively flat, but if you use a stiff brush and a good glob of sealer, you can get a cool brushstroke effect. The other nice thing about using Mod Podge instead of resin is that you can move on to the next step while it's still drying.
Nice, I've just started making them and selling them in south africa. What's more nice is that people choose what images they want printed on them. Great way of killing boring weekends and making extra cash... :)<br>
I wonder if auto body dent pulling pin studs could attach to back &amp; be threaded or peened? http://www.harborfreight.com/stud-welder-dent-repair-kit-98357.html
Thank you I've been searching forever to see if you could use mod podge for this, cause that's all I have lol!!
would gorilla glue super glue work<br />
Just a thought:<br /> <br /> A&nbsp;possible further step would be to cut down almost all of the edge that sticks up, then fold/bend the remaining metal on to itself, so that it leaves a flat outward face.<br /> <br /> I think i shall try this if i ever have some spare time.<br /> <br />
I would put the picture outside.
But then how would one attach the pin?
Thick paste inside, and the pin in the same way you did. Excuse my English, I translated with Google
you know what would make it more badass? if you put a rebel flag on it, i made a pin one that was pretty awesome
I've never seen it done this way. Very nice.
There might things that say badass even better, but homemade buttons have got to be in the top three.
Neat! I'd probably crimp the edges down with plies or put a disc of plastic over the picture as well or something though - or maybe even epoxy, just something to give it a thickness :p
