Will the EnviroLite epoxy stick to duct tape/painters tape, so that when I go to peel the lip of tape off, it will leave residue?

OK well i have been woking on a table for quite some time, and have finally collected enough caps to finish it.

Here is the table:

and


Its just over 3,400 caps all AB products (red  stripes is budweiser, white stripes is natural light, blue is bud light, stars are mic ultra and black is bud select).

Anyways, the reason im posting this is because i want to put epoxy over all of it, and wass wondering what is the best way to do this?

I added this thread to my bookmarks about a little over a year ago. The guy with the Penn State table did it right. Very nice.

I started collecting caps a long time ago and have enough and started the gluing and what not over the past two days. I am using a hot glue gun and taking my time before I epoxy. Waste of time I know but I am comfortable and very satisfied with the results so far. I also have my trim pieces for the edge of the table cut and painted just need to be mounted. I kept them off so I can get the perfect height once all the caps are in place. My table is just under 3 foot wide and 7 feet long.

Few designs I laid out to be put on the table.

What I have glued down. Busch Light is the main background cap.

I just finished my bench to coordinate with the bar posted a few years back.  The bench took 2 years Smiley  Glad to be done with it!!!

Thanks to everyone who has posted to this thread.  It was helpful as I built my barn wood bar with epoxy encapsulated bottle caps for the bar top.  The caps with glued down with modeling glue followed by unsanded black grout and US Composites Kleer Kote table top epoxy.

to anyone who actually reads this far, let me tell you that you do *NOT* need to glue your bottle caps down first.  Just pour a very thin layer of epoxy over the arranged caps and let that set.
