Hi all,

I found a ton of small gold and silver jewelry beads in my craft closet.  So I decided to use mod podge and stick it on a mason jar.  A day later, it is not quiet holding it together.  So I applied another coat of mod podge.  Any suggestions?  I like to use these as wedding centerpieces.  I uploaded the picture in member's gallery which still has the white tape around.

Thank you so much.  Do you know how i can work with E6000, to spread the glue around the glass and then add the beads?  When doing research on Youtube, I got the impression that i have a very few seconds to work with this glue.  I am a newbie so any help or suggestions is truly welcome.  Thank you.

I would squirt out some E-6000 on a paper plate and dip the beads into the glue and do it that way.  You are right, the E-6000 does tend to dry quickly.

Thank you.  I will try that.

E-6000 doesn't dry THAT fast; you can spread it on the jar and then add the beads. Just do a small bit at a time -- maybe a 2-inch square or so. You may have to hold the beads in place for a bit, as well, especially if you set the jar upright. I just used E-6000 to add beads to glass the other day, and this method worked perfectly!!
