Took a photo of the finished piece, propped it in a window and the wind blew it over and smashed it into a million pieces.

The End.

The Best Glue for the Job

The Best Glue for Glass and Tile

… available at home improvement, box stores & tile shops everywhere.

 

Best Glue for Glass

1. “CLEAR” E-6000 is a my adhesive of choice for glass on glass projects and with all toxic adhesives, make sure to work in a well ventilated area.

DIRECTIONS & TIPS FOR USING “Clear” E-6000:

Apply E-6000 directly to each piece of glass to be bonded.

Always wear safety glasses when cutting glass.

SPECIAL TIPS: To extend life of product, be sure cap is secured back to original position. Use a toothpick as a disposable applicator for very small applications such as beading. Remove, recap and allow plastic nozzle to dry. Remove dried product from nozzle by pulling out through threaded end and reuse nozzle.

2. Weldbond Adhesive for Mosaic Tile and some Glass Projects

Best Glue for Indoor Tile & Glass Projects

  1. Non-toxic.
  2. No smell.
  3. Great for projects with kids.
  4. Dries clear … in most circumstances.
  5. Longer working time.

Weldbond

Weldbond says this about their wonder glue …. A unique product, WELDBOND is more than an adhesive. It’s also a powerful universal primer for porous surfaces. It’s a weather-proofer, dust-proofer, hardener, and bonding agent. Just mix WELDBOND with sawdust, grout, cement or plaster and be amazed at the tremendous strength this product! Non-toxic and dries clear – in most situations – making it a perfect adhesive to use when crafting with kids. Dries to a clear, flexible bond most of the time.

Mastic

Mastic is a non-slip high performance, smooth spreading mortar formulated for interior installation of all types of ceramic wall & floor tile. Mastic keeps things from slipping … especially good for concrete, back-splashes and larger projects!
 

Thinset

Thinset is an adhesive mortar made of fine sand, cement and water. It’s best used to attach objects to concrete, stone and cement. Perfect for mosaic art outdoor applications.

Gluing takes patience.

Wait until it dries.

Losing My Marbles

A full jar of glass marbles literally jumped off the shelf.

Inspiration granted.

The vintage window was purchased in Orange, California with my sista friend, Alice.  A fun day was had by all.

Lovin’ the glass heart porthole!

“Conscience is no more than the dead speaking to us.” ― Jim Carroll

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t “try” to do things. You simply “must” do things.” — Ray Bradbury

Glass on Glass

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.” — Pearl S. Buck
