The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. – Pierre Corneille
Start with a sturdy picture frame, any size, with a glass insert. This one is from Ikea.
Clean the glass and then glue the glass into the frame. Let it dry.
Then … Carefully smear Weldbond adhesive on the back of your bits and pieces.
You have some working time to move them around.
*You can use E6000 adhesive in a well ventilated area ... just don't get it on your fingers. E6000 is not recommended when working with children.
… SMEAR being the operative word … and it should dry clear in a day or two.
Sometimes not … if you don’t smear.
Puddles of Weldbond usually won’t dry clear. Kapeesh?
Let it dry for a day or two.
You can grout the piece, if you want to.
Since this one sits in the window … I prefer not to.
Because then it looks like this …
and the beat goes on … peace!
