and she can’t find her glue …

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!
A 10 panel vintage window scored while treasure hunting in Orange, California with Alice. The window measures a VERY STURDY 5′ x 2′ and has really cool hinges to use for hanging or not. If I end up keeping this piece, I’m going to have it installed as the front door side window for the cabin.
Amazed that the pieces magically fit together.
Probably should have glued it while I was laying it out.
Glitter makes the world a better place.
