"Moonglow" Bottle Caps

The glass cabochons I made as SWAG that I can put into smaller geocaches were boring.  Here is my second attempt at making small SWAG.  I've seen other DIY SWAG where people have glued charms or other things like logo images into bottle caps.  Here is my take on the bottle cap medallion.


.Alcohol ink on foil, adhered to a cardstock base and sealed with a water-based epoxy substitute and resin sticker on a black craft bottlecap.  I made 24 of these.

Alcohol Ink Jenga Block Charms

Still playing with alcohol inks.  

Alcohol ink on craft plastic on a gold metallic painted Jenga block.  Sealed with kamar varnish and polycrylic to make it water-resistant.  With an eyescrew and jump ring for hanging.  

I made 12 of these.


What geocaches did these end up in?
