while hoosier man and the georgia boys were away on a camp out a couple weeks ago i began this project.
i set up a spray painting station. i was using 4 different colors of spray paint for this project. i knew it would be slow going because of the small station, and the time it would take to make sure everything was dry.
my extended family: brother, sisters, mom and dad collected bottle caps for me that i was going to use for another project which i never made. i may still make it because i have alot of bottle caps still. i saw this idea for a bottle cap tray from Sweet Something Design, online several months ago and i thought that it would be easy and fun.
after spray painting 100 bottle caps in a little yellow, a lovely blue, a pale gray, and a white i laid them out on a white tray that i had purchased on sale from micheals; it was already painted white. it was on sale because the plexiglas that hugged the bottom was cracked. i didn't have need of the plexiglas so the tray would be perfect. and it was a really good size. for the bottle caps, i had to play around with the them to get them just how i wanted them. i mixed the clear epoxy according to package directions and very slowly poured the casting gel into the crevices (mostly) of my bottle caps.
