OUR MISSION: To facilitate communication among glass artists, to encourage education and promote excellence in the glass arts.


The glass should be clean and have a dam around it.

Cleaning the glass is important. If there is dust left from the sandblasting/
grinding stage, the glue will not stick to the glass.

Place the glass on a level surface. The glass should be room temperature.

Pour the glue onto the glass in an even layer between 1/16th to 1/8th inch thick. If the glass is level the glue will flow to a uniform thickness on its own. You can tilt the glass from side to side to help the glue flow.

CAUTION: If your glue is too hot, it may shock the glass causing it to break, allowing the glue to run all over.
