Stained Glass Window Mosaic

cuttingupSeptember 13, 2006

I am trying to use up my small pieces of stained glass. I am in the process of doing a 6 panel window using small stained glass pieces using a mosaic method. The glue I bought said you need to let it set for 2 min. before you apply it to the surface. Some of my pieces are very small and this is very time consuming. I am using Carpenter's Goop [glue says it is waterproof and glues to glass]. Do you think I could spread the whole glass panel with glue and then put down pieces? That would mean some areas would spaces with no glass. Would this give me problems when I go to grout the window? Do you know of a glue to use for outside use that is waterproof and will work on glass and not yellow? I'd appreciate any guidance from you in this matter.Thank you.

Since you have had no one respond to you on this forum, why not try the Garden Junk forum. There are a lot of crafters there who do beautiful mosaic work and they may be able to answer your question. What you are doing, they call 'glass on glass'.

I use Mac glue on my mosaic and have been very happy with it. You can buy it online.
