All that’s left is the photograph. Found its way to the Big Apple.
Always hope they are loved as much as they were while I was creating them.
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!
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.
Doesn’t look like much but …. In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~Aaron Rose
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!
