i've got the mosaic part down, the stained glass part down, the grout part down - but this will be my first time using some translucent glass in my work AND my first time doing a backsplash (over the stove and countertops). most of the glass is opaque, but about a third of it has clear streaks. so i don't *really* want to use the tile adhesives i've used in the past. i'd like something clear and quick drying -- and it has to be cost effective, because i have about 15 sq. feet to cover. eek.

i've heard that weldbond is good, and someone else recommended clear liquid nails, but i really want to make sure i get the right thing - and i figure if anyone could help me, the craftster comm could!

thanks in advance for all your advice/suggestions!

I use DAP "Alex Plus" acrylic latex caulk plus silicone (clear). It has always worked really well and has the benefit of being mold/mildew resistant and waterproof since you're doing a backsplash. I just get the big tube of it and use a caulking gun to put a some into a cup and then use it like glue with a paintbrush or a craft stick.

Also, it is very cost-effective. Smiley

Good luck!
