Default Sealing a bottle cap

What's the easiest and or best way to seal a bottle cap? I get how to make them, print them, and then glue them onto the cap. I need help deciding how to seal them on top, not the inside of the cap.

Thanks, I've also seen about using EPOXY bubbles. Do those work well? or will they fall off?

I wasn't crazy about the dots until I tried Sweet*Lily*Rose's resin drops. Quick, easy to use and gorgeous The best one I've found!

I use the drops in an emergency, but the finish doesn't compare to poured resin. They always seem a little cloudy to me, even with the best polyurethane ones, and the poured resin is like clear shiny glass. Just my opinion, but the resin is definitely worth the trouble.

I like the brand I shared because it comes with directions for drying them faster in the oven. I've poured some at 5:30 am and they were ready when I left for work at 7
