HSG, black was the perfect choice for this piece.  Now, shall I send my address so that you can mail it to me?!?! 

Black was *THE* perfect choice for this piece.  It pops all of the vibrant colors for you, and demonstrates your (as usual ) perfect grout lines, and each individual piece of glass.

Well done, my friend!

Gosh, that is really amazing! I am so inspired! Beautiful work! I am a dabbler with little equipment so glass seems really intimidating to me. But I have done mosaics, it just never occurred to me to put glass on glass (I'm sheltered, LOL). I may just have to try it. Thanks for sharing!

No problem batgirl! And if you should have any questions if you decide to venture further into mosaics, I'd be happy to help. Smiley

Thanks! I have one already! What are the adhesive options? I know you said you used a caulk gun, but barring that, will something like E6000 work? And, it's just ordinary window glass, right? *can't wait to go home and raid basement for old windows*  Smiley

Batgirl,
I am not the expert, but my aunt who is a Fused Glass artist swears by E600 for glass on glass, and glass on metal/wood applications.  She has been using it to make pins, jewelery, tile/mosaic furniture as well as make drawer pulls and cabinet hardware for years.  I would say that for a beginner it would be a good start.

Yes, you can use E6000, but that can get expensive if it is a bigger mosaic.

The GEII silicone also comes in squeeze tubes at any home improvement or hardware stores. It comes in clear, and is about $5.00 for a tube that will do a few projects.

If you're doing a project for outside there are other adhesive options, too.

Please, post pictures of any mosaics. It would be nice to see others work. Smiley
