Step 6: Special Caps. Bunus CAPS

Coming soon.
Gamma Gulp,
Secret cap design

Yes These are just in the design phase. I need some more caps to start. Will Edit when they are finished.

Ok here is the progress so far. Hope  can come up with more. You may need to re-size depending on your printer. The Black Isle Label definitely needs to be Re sized. Just throw them on your standard beer bottle.
anyone know how to go about selling these with out getting sued
<p>etsy it works great just make shure you say that nuka cola caps arnt owned by you</p>
<p>Really great instructable! Got me a new keyring for when I get my car!</p>
<p>These are my first batch! Thanks for the instructions!!!</p>
<p>Gave this a few diffrent tries. I think the best so far is using a tiny bit of super-glue instead of elmers and coating it with clear nail polish. it makes the paper a tad transparent, and really adds to the weathering! </p>
<p>I've made a top of these and every other fallout related thing I can think of. </p>
<p>Hey! These are AWESOME! They'll be great for my Fallout themed wedd recep! Have you thought about using Modpodge instead of Elmer's glue? The gloss version of Modpodge would be perfect!</p>
Thanks! I pretty much use ModPodge and Elmer's interchangeably. Or which ever one is closer.
<br>&quot;Finger nail File. (one of those foam core ones. Ask your wife, Girl Friend, Hair stylist or the gal at Wallmart in the Isle with all the bathroom stuff&quot; <br> <br>I'm sorry, but I'm going there. Men aren't the only people who play Fallout, and women aren't the only people who know that a half decent emery board is an integral part of crafting. Check yo shit.
If I were to do this to filled bottles, do you think the labels would survive a bottle opener? Thinking about having a bunch of dusty cold bottles available at a party.
If you put a thick enough clear coat on the caps it should be OK. Use something food safe however. A few coats of Elmer's glue....or if you are very carefull a few coats of clear fingernail polish might work. Just don't get any on the actual bottle.
this is brilliant im going to be making some fallout new vegas props soon as well <br>
Two questions: <br> <br>Is it pure hydrogen peroxide? <br>And what do you mean with 'Rinse with some water and marvel at house hole chemistry.' ?
It's standard household Hydrogen Peroxide, Whether it is pure...I don't know I don't have one in front of me to look at. And what I mean by &quot;Rinse with some water and marvel at house hole chemistry.' is once it's sat for three hours or over night or however long you leave it you need to rinse off the salt and hydrogen peroxide. The rest is kinda self explanatory if you look at the pictures and read the page. But in case you didn't understand. The Salt and Hydrogen Peroxide will oxidize the exposed metal of the cap, giving it that 'authentic wasteland look.'
Thanks! I wanted to make a stimpak out of tin cans and let them have same wasteland look.
will it ruin the weathered affect if you accidentally leave the solution in the fridge for like an hour<br>
not really...Just don't spill or drip the hydrogen peroxide on ANYTHING. It will &quot;bleach&quot; what ever it hits. I've frequently left mine over night. Just makes the bare metal rustier.
How do you size the caps on the paper right? Mine end up being to small.
ummm...i made them the right size. If you are clicking fit to paper in your print window or are not use US Letter sized paper then you might be screwed with out a little resizing....<br><br>What I did is in GIMP...drew a bunch of circles different sizes...Find out the closest size to your bottle cap.Use that one as a size comparison and re-size the other ones.
hey geek father, can you tell me when you are going to post the other caps. i dont want to foget about it and never get around to never making them so i was just wondering. cool instructable by the way. the caps look awesome!
Ok they are up now. Enjoy. If you have any suggestions feel free.
Thanks Darkness. I would have updated the Prop thread on the outpost too but it seemed to be down earlier.
looks great Geek!
