Seaglass Sailboat

The sail on the right side of the boat was found by my grandson Justin.

The sail on the left and a piece that I used for the water was found by this lady named Mary Jo.

She died two days after she gave me the piece of seaglass.

I wanted to create something special from two special people so here it is.

hot glue?

Has anyone tried gluing to glass or plexi with hot glue? Does it turn yellow or fall off or anything?

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. The sailboat was actually done on real glass and not plexiglass. My husband makes the frames for me. The glass does not have to be all the same thickness. Yes the glue will show lightly on the back. I hope this helps.

Wow! How did you do that?

Our whole family loves finding beach glass, and we have quite a bit. My 10 year old daughter is looking for a 4-H fair craft project and wanted to use her beach glass. We saw your sail boat and fell in love with the idea. I noticed you use plexiglass and not glass, which is perfect, as she can't use glass for the fair. Might you share your knowledge with us? Did you build your own frame? Do the glass pieces need to be the same thickness? Does the glue show? Do you glue the glass on both sides?
Sorry, I'm full of questions! It is so beautiful! I'd love to see what she might come up with!

I will be looking for some yellow glass for a sun or I will change the color of the background paper so you can see the moon.

I found lots of tiny blue pieces and thought they would look great as sparkling water.
