Sealing ink onto glass drinkware

I have begun hand-painting glass drinkware with Ranger alcohol inks. I tried many things as varnish/sealant, all of which damaged the surface in some way. (I tried several Krylon sprays, a Mod Podge spray, Golden GAC 700, Golden Matte Varnish, and Ranger's own brush-on varnish.) I read an article about baking them for half an hour at 400, so I did that.

Now I have some that I would like to put up in my Etsy shop. However, I'm nervous that the designs won't last, especially if buyers treat them harshly. I can put up a disclaimer, but I would rather know that buyers will get to enjoy them for a while.

Is there anything else I can do?

Have you ever tried a UV Resin? You just put the resin over your painted area and then set it in the sun if you don't have a UV light - seals it in a snap.

Is that food-safe and dishwasher safe? That's a big problem I'm running into.

cured resin is chemically inactive and so is considered food safe - I also found a two part resin called Little Windows - it takes longer to cure though - 24 to 48 hours and that is food safe too.
