We don't do this with our under mount lights but you could then thin another batch of epoxy and "clearcoat" the cap. It might be better to try on a sample cap first to test the appearance.
Good Luck...stuff like that on a job really "bumbs" me when I know it hurts the final look of the project,
For future reference they make lids with a recessed top for stamped concrete and pebble-tec applications
