  1. this is awesome! :party1:
    I can really use this with the glass crafting I’m soon going to be doing. Thx for posting this!

  2. it sounds great for adding labels & stuff.
    but can you use this to glue glass back together & is it waterproof enough to keep the glass together with water in the glass container for some time without coming apart?
    thank you, kydee
