WOW. it's cool. Love it.
how do you wind up the watch? or change the battery? or...

And another one... i c u r using see-through/transparent bits. what glue do u use?
i also ordered some round ones and kinda transparent. i use a glue that's kinda white/yellowish. guessing it'd look yucky with the glue and then the brown substrate...
any suggestions?

Thank you! Got the watch at a garage sale, not working, It was about a buck. I bought it to use for mosaics. I've learned you have to look at everything different and think outside the box, I think that part is really fun.

The glue is weldbond. I get the big tube around $7.00 at Michaels and use the 40% coupon. I like weldbond for inside projects. It dries clear and is easy to remove. I seem to get really sloppy with glue and get it in many places it shouldn't be.

You have to experiment some and see what works for you. I use to use the ge silicone, but man did I make a mess with that and had such a time getting it off, me and my mosaics!

Hope this helps, enjoy!
