newbie help

elliej123January 5, 2013

I have been dabbling with mosaics for a while now. My current project is a mailbox. I am using a combination of beach glass and glass discs (like those used in vases). I am planning on using the "indirect method" using contact paper. My question is what kind of adhesive should i use. The mailbox is black metal. Also will this be too heavy for the indirect method?

Thanks so much

I advice against the indirect method for this, wt is going to hamper you as well as the bends - you would be going from flat to rounded and compensating for the loss of space is hard. For outdoors and metal you should consider a silicone for adhesive
