Default HELP!!! Bottlecap problems

I received an order of bottlecaps and upon really sitting down and looking at them I noticed that whatever glue (resin, epoxy...) used to seal the top of the image does not reach the edges so around the outer edge of the image is unsealed. I have contacted the one I ordered from but just in case is there anyway to fix them? Can the glue be heated or melted again to spread to the edges?

When I first started making bottlecaps I didn't get all the way to the edges didn't notice until they were all dry and set. I tried to add a little more ET Lite to the edges. It didn't look so great, you could see the circle where the original edge was through the new epoxy......I don't know about trying it with anything else, sorry.

Are you sure its a resin like ETLite and not a epoxy bubble? I use the bubbles and they have a small gap around the edges.

What I usually do is before I glue the image into the bottlecap I put a layer of modpodge on the flat side and coat it and get it around the edges to ensure they are sealed all the way around.
