Crown cap collection
Hello Magnet Shop Team,
The history: I collect bottle caps. These come from beer or soda bottles. For a long time I was looking for an appropriate way to present them.
The requirements were: I didn’t want to attach fasteners directly to the wall. The adhesion of the crown caps should be reversible. When the collection is enlarged, the specimens from the same region can subsequently be positioned in the immediate vicinity. Gluing the bottle caps was out of the question.
By chance I discovered in the magnet shop that there is a magnetic paint which, after being applied to a wall or something similar, serves as a primer for magnets. Commercially available artist’s canvases were coated three to four times with the magnetic paint to create the primer. After light sanding with fine sandpaper, this was finished.
Crown caps are made of metallic material. The magnets adhere by themselves. The magnets were then attached to the inner surfaces of the crown caps and the crown caps adhere to the canvases.
They can be positioned appropriately and moved if necessary.
As a label, a magnetic tape was cut into suitable pieces and labeled with labels. This solution is easy to implement. An absolute WOW effect is guaranteed!
