and she can’t find her glue …
Used a simple 8 x 10 white picture frame from Ikea … glued the piece of glass into the frame (with Weldbond) and let it dry overnight.
The little glass fish dish was the catalyst … the rest of the glass pieces were magically glued into place with Clear e6000 adhesive.

Shadows only mean that there is light nearby. Go to the light …
Feeling very accomplished this week. All is good.
as always … work in a well ventilated room when using toxic adhesives and always wear safety glasses when working with glass!
I found this 10-panel vintage window in Orange, California. It survived the drive back to the Midwest – on top of the truck – and measures 5′ x 2′ feet. The window has a sturdy frame and the glass is in great shape plus … it has really cool hinges that I’ll leave as is. Considering how long this took to create I may have to keep this piece and find a place for it in the cabin. It’s a favorite!
Cleaned the entire window with vinegar & water and let it dry. Started to cut the glass pieces and create the design. Made the decision to not glue it down during the design.
Next time … I’m going to trust myself and glue the glass as I’m laying out the design.
