Sea Glass Crafts Window Hanging

Here is a picture of my seaglass window that I thought you might enjoy. Some of the pieces are worn more then others.

The light shines through it. I have it hanging in my sun room.

I can't take all of the credit. My husband makes the frames for me.

I use Plexiglas for the background and then I glue the pieces of seaglass on with E6000.

You have to use Plexiglas because if you try gluing them on regular glass, the glass will crack from the weight of the seaglass.

It took me a few attempts to find this out.

I am glad you like it.

beach glass glued on existing window
by: Holly

Hi, I have a window over shower in bathroom that is 14" by 34".

Can I just glue beach glass to it or is it necessary to use a piece of plexiglass with a frame and mount it in front of existing window?

I read about the windows cracking and wonder how serious the cracks are. We live in Baja, MX so cold weather isn't a factor at all. The window is on north side of our house.

Question for you
by: Michele

Hi

I love your framed beach glass.

I am just wondering how you made the frame?

Is it a normal frame then just attach the plexglass to it somehow?

I have been collecting beach glass for over 30 years and I would love to make one.

Thanks

You can color your white seaglass using food coloring and either elmer's glue or matte Mod Podge.

I use E6000 for glue.

I always glue to plexiglass because I have never had luck gluing seaglass to glass.

It cracks the glass every time.

Try having someone make you a frame that is like a shadowbox that has glass on both sides and then gently drop your seaglass down in between them.

i bet that would work.

Good luck!

Just what I was looking for
by: beachgirl

Absolutely Beautiful... I have been trying to figure out how to do this...

I do have a question though, do you have any ideas for how I could make this two sided as we would like to frame the window and put it in a wall to let the sun from one side shine through to the other and I would like it to look great from both sides

hi Mona,

Your window is just lovely!

This time of year in mass. it's hard to be outside much, but you have inspired me to get back to work with my seaglass.

I've made jewelry along with frames using seashells, pottery and seaglass.

Think I could hire your husband to make a frame?

Thanks,

MaryAnne

I don't stain the glass. This is all natural the way I found it on the beach.

staining sea glass
by: Sally

How do you stain seaglass? What do you use?

I have so many whites and would love to stain them cobalt blue or red even though that would sort of "cheating".

Hi Mona, I also have been doing windows for years now.

One of my favorite spots for collecting is Monhegan island.

I cant believe there are two of us.

Best of luck there.

Question
by: Seaglassbeach!

These projects look great!

I would love to try to make something like this with my seaglass collection...

What would I use to stain the glass.

Thank you so much!

You Can Use Glass
by: sickitten.com

And you can perfectly stain the beach glass.

I've made the windows.

One all natural and one where I stained the clear and light aqua pieces cobalt blue and dark aqua.

Will post pictures on this site by Monday.

I used glass epoxy to apply the glass, perfectly and seamlessly.

I lucked out and found a beach just loaded with well worn, odd colored glass.

A dream!
