So here’s how it is. Doctor Who is the best television show of all time in the history of ever. I know, I know, such a bold statement. But I believe it to be true. Curt and I started watching Doctor Who last year and became hooked almost immediately. Let’s be honest, the British know how to do television right. Who’s with me on that one?
I decided to make some Doctor Who magnets. Aren’t they fantastic?! (said in Nine’s voice.)
Bottle caps. Check.
Doctor Who images. Check.
I went to my Doctor Who Pinterest board knowing that I had already pinned some really great images. I printed the images out onto photo paper. I don’t think regular printer paper would hold up well against the epoxy.
Put the image in the bottom of the bottle cap.
I made the mistake of putting a dab of glue to attach the images to the bottle caps.
After I poured the epoxy into the bottle caps the images started to get discolored from the glue. DO NOT glue the images down! Just lay them in the bottom. As you can see from this picture, the ones I had glued are ruined. Blerg.
I mixed up the epoxy in a plastic cup and it worked great for pouring into the bottle caps.
About a minute after I poured the epoxy into the bottle caps air bubbles formed under the images.
Not to worry. I used a popsicle stick to push the paper to the bottom of the bottle cap and the air bubbles popped.
I let my bottle caps sit for a couple days to give the epoxy adequate time to dry. Then I attached magnets to the caps using hot glue.
I must admit, I’m a little crazy about these!
Any fellow Whovians reading this? Or just regular people who think I’m totally geeky?
Until next time….
