    This looks amazing!! I am working on doing this for my kitchen - have finally collected 10,000 caps and am working on the design now. Would love any tips that you have!! Main thing I'm worried about is the caps getting dented somehow if alot of weight is pressed in one spot.

  • Rene Howard Rene Howard on Feb 23, 2018
    what did you use to hold them down initially before the epoxy? What is "thin set"?
  • Janice Janice on Feb 23, 2018
    Thin set is a type of mortar (like concrete) that is mixed to a batter consistency, applied to the floor using tools for tiling a floor. The bottle caps were then placed onto the mortar. Let dry, then they likely applied grout, just as you would on a tile floor, then they sealed to keep the finish on the bottle caps shiny and finish the floor to a smooth finish for easy cleaning and waterproof finish. That is a great look. It would also be pretty applied to foam board and framed in a picture frame as conversation art. Great share, Cristy!
