Trying to update a builder grade mirror with small stones. Can I hot glue them and will it hold up with the humidity?

    Hot glue will glue them on to the mirror, but keep in mind that the mirror will quickly become very difficult to keep clean. This uneven bumpy surface will attract lint, hair, powder, dust, and bacteria, like a magnet.

    Hot glue won't last. Use clear builders glue that comes in tubes that require a caulk gun...this will be the most economical. You can only work in small sections, letting them dry before adding more. You might consider taping off a frame and frosting the border.

    Yes, but how will you clean mirror once applied..........?

    Definitely. You can alternatively use clear silicone sealant as long as you can work on the mirror horizontally to prevent stones from sliding off while the sealant dries.

    I made this shell mirror years ago for my daughter. Always been in a bathroom. So yes, the stone will work and I would love to see your mirror when it is done!
