Eliza shared a few pictures of some quick projects she creates using No Days Mosaic Adhesive film. Thanks, Eliza!
|Five Boats in Blue ~ created with NO Days Mosaic Adhesive film|
& scraps of stained glass on framing glass
These are a few of my first uses of Streuter NO-DAYS Mosaic Adhesive Film. The projects go quickly! I have just been using leftover glass pieces from stained glass projects and Cats eye glass from the jewelry I make, building on backgrounds of glass from float picture frames (I also do Photography). The Blue glass was a request from a friend who loves blue glass anything. I made this in one night. There are 5 sailboats. She didn't want it grouted and it was later copper foiled and soldered with hooks to hang on her sun porch.

- I use a small paint brush tip to press all the pieces to make sure they have contact with the film after heating or taking out of the oven.
- Also, I first make sure the back of all pieces are flat.
- I've had trouble with bubbles forming in the adhesive if it's not covered with anything. To fix this, I have added embossing powder to cover the film (or later the bubbles) up and put it back in the oven or use a heat gun, heating it a little longer to attach the powder to the film. I use different colors of embossing powder, but found that if I heat it too long it all turns to copper color which I guess is the base color under the pastel colored powders.
