Default Dented bottlecaps

Well, if anyone else has done this, is there a solution? I made a bunch of bottle caps and used 3d crystal glaze. They turned out beautiful and I gave them several days to dry completely. Then I put them in individual zip lock baggies and made cute toppers and stapled them on. Used my regular old hole punch and put a hole in the top for hanging on pegs. Then I put them away until now....arggg!!! Most of them have these spots where the baggie stuck to the glaze and either sort of dented it or just made foggy like spots around the edges. I am trying to bake them now to see if maybe the spots will melt away but I don't have much faith that it is going to work. Should I skip the 3d glaze all together? Is there any way to save these? HELP!!!

Ok, 200 degrees for 15 minutes didn't fix the problem but a bit longer might have because a couple cleared up a bit. 250 degrees for 15 minutes....not so much! Lol! I had the bubbliest mess you had ever seen. A few didn't bubble. I think they were a different resin. They did however brown a bit. Just thought I would let you know if anybody else was wondering
