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?

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.

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.

I am trying to glue sheet music to a window, but it seems no matter what glue I use you can see it when looking at it from the front. I have used mod podge matte and other things.

Please I need help asap!

How about trying to use window clings material and placing the music on the window and the cling on top like creating a sandwich. Any glue you use can risk permanent damage to the windows. If this doesn't work, there are window clings you can run thru a scanner/copier/printer. You get them at office supplies stores/sites. You could scan the music to the cling, then the cling image goes to stick to the window. Then you could get rid of the paper. Personally, to me because I have issues with silver fish, I would avoid glue and paper on a window. It would become a silver fish insects buffet in my house :(
