What kind of glue can I use for creating a window pane design?
I would use tacky glue. Aleene's makes a good one.
Like window clings? I used to make then from plain Elmer's and glitter or a few drops of food coloring. Now they make them with factory installed glam...I need to get crafting since they made it so easy! Have fun!!!
I am doing some sea glass pictures where I need to glue the sea glass to cardstock paper. What is a good glue that will dry clear so that you can't see the glue through the sea glass on the paper after it dries?
You can use Elmer's school glue it dries clear or mod podge.
I find that "Gorilla" glue is the best glue for any type craft, it does come in several types so be sure and read the label telling that it is clear. And they do have a quick drying if you want that kind.
What type of glue is best for securing embellishments (fabrics, silk florals, beads, etc.) onto lighted glass blocks and wine bottles? I need a glue that will not soften from the heat of the lighted blocks. How would I remove the glue in case of a mistake?
The best glue to use with glass is a high tech adhesive such as E6000 or Bond 527. These glues are not water soluable and they bond well to both porous and non-porous surfaces. They set slowly, which means you can reposition things before they completely dry, and they dry clear. You can find them with other glues at Walmart, hardware stores, or most anywhere glues are sold.
Craft projects using glass often require you to glue glass to glass. This is a page about gluing glass to glass.
Beads that are glued to a glass should be sealed with an acrylic product, such as a matte medium to keep them in place. This is a page about gluing beads onto a wine glass.
