Bottle Cap Art Tutorial: How I Craft my Bottle Cap Mosaics

Every few weeks I get an email asking me about how my Bottle Cap Mosaics are created… people want to know what they're made of, how the caps are attached, where I get the caps for the mosaics and so on. I've created the video below to answer most of those questions.

Probably the most frequent question is "do you drink all that beer yourself?" Well, no. If I did, I'd never get anything done so I hire professionals (ie: I get most of them from bars and quite a few from friends who save them for me).

Do you have questions or comments?

About John
