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.

Love your project! Did you pour resin over it after you glued pieces to glass? Want to make one in memory of my grandmother who always spent time with me searching for treasures on the beach.

This is one of the best gifts that you can gift to them. Best. Mary and Justin must be so happy about this right. That sail boat is awesome in look. The classy design make it more attractive. You are great Mona.

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!
