Mod Podge Doesn't Stick to Clear Glass Plate?

I'm making clear glass Christmas plates with fabric and MP. After the fabric has dried and MP sealer was applied, some of the fabric around the rim of the plate lacks MP to adhere to plate. Any ideas how to remedy problem? The top of the plates need to be food safe. Thank you.

Did you try a glue on the fabric to the glass first, and then after that cured, apply the mod podge over it? I have one plate like this and the lady who made it said that is what she did. It has to be hand washed and the top is clear glass (fabric on the bottom) is food safe.

Normally if you want to add material to a glass object you need to use a special glue that will allow you to glue the material to the object. Now if the plate needs to have food you would normally only glue a part of the plate and cover this with the material. I find out that MP is not good to use to seal this.

I normally seal mine with some clear varnish. Just keep in mind no matter what you will need to leave a section of the plate free from glue or material so that you can add food to the plate. I have made a lot of Christmas plates in the past and when I put the food on the plates I normally lay the food on wax paper if I have covered the full plate.

What other glue is there besides MP? I have invested a couple of bucks on MP. Can I salvage plates if I apply another coat or two of MP after its been sealed with spray? Will another coat fix areas where fabric didnt hold around rim? If I can get fabric to adhere to plate, I will use wax paper. Im stress eating with 8 plates I cant give as gifts LOL. Thank you!

I use Elmer's white school glue and add some water to the glue to thin it down. What you can try is putting the MP on the plate and ad the material there.

Then when it is starting to dry and 1 or 2 coats of MP to the top of the material to get it to stick down. After, add the varnish to this to seal it.

I have never tried this but every video that I've watched used Mod Podge when doing this type of craft.

Now, as to making 'repairs' to your plates that are not sticking around the rims I'm really not sure how to do this.
Is it possible to try and slip Mod Podge between the rim and fabric and press it down and wipe away excess?
I would suggest you take one of your plates to either Michael's or JoAnn's and see if anyone there can offer suggestions. Sometimes they have knowledgeable personnel that would know about this.

Sometimes you can also ask your question on the YouTube video sites.
Wish I had a good answer but this is all that I can think of.
