I have made a perler bead artwork, about 15x30cm, and now I want to mount it. I would like it to be mounted in some kind of white rubber/glue like material, so that the perler beads are partly covered by the material. I.e. I would need a layer of material that is maybe 2-3 mm thick (about 1/8"). Is there some kind of glue I could use, or maybe glue mixed with paint? Here is a perler bead artwork glued onto a painted canvas: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v478/kaptenen/Beads/f15e2901.jpg . I want something like that, but with a really thick layer of paint (and preferably something cheaper than artist's paint.

I feel that I haven't been writing things in English for a while. Sorry if it's hard to understand what I mean. Feel free to ask.  Smiley And thank you for any help.

If I'm understanding you, try mastic. It is an adhesive for glass and tiles, and you can make it any thickness you like under your perler pieces.
