Do You 'sand' your glass pieces before gluing?
Just wondering if everyone 'sands' the rim of the glass pieces in totems and stakes and flowers, before gluing them?
I read somewhere that it helps with the 2 bits of glass 'gripping' the glue better but wondered if it was standard practice?
I find some surfaces very hard to sand!! (I am using garnet paper.)
Arcopal (or Corelle, tempered glass, very tough wearing) plates especially are as tough as guts and I actually had a cup and saucer bird feeder fall apart the other day! I like to lay the cup down on the saucer so the handle can be used to suspend the bird-feeder (see photo) and the other day I found the saucer lying on the ground. I wondered if it was due to the fact the Arcopal is such a tough, smooth compound that the glue didn't 'grip' and so the plate just peeled off!
So, do you sand and do you steer clear of certain cups or plates?
Feedback appreciated :)
