I am using E6000 to attach the glass gems to an old window. I want to make sure that everything will stay attached. I plan on spraying clear Krylon onto the whole glass project as it will be outdoors in the weather. I painted underneath the glass gems with glitter nail polish ...I saw someone do that online ...I wanted the glass gems to have a sparkely effect when the sun hits the pieces. Am I doing everything I need to do to not worry about it being out in the elements?

    The Krylon may yellow badly w sun exposure. Talk to some one at a good hardware store. I don't think it's a good idea. The glass will hold up fine, as well as the pane. The glue is protected by the glass beads. Don't spray it.

    I didn't seal my glass beaded outdoor lights and they still look great.

    Don't spray them with anything. Glass is easy to clean and sparkle; if you coat them dirt will stick and the coating will eventually discolor spoiling the look. I used glass blobs in my shower - they look like bubbles. I used E6000 to attach them. They make a new polymer grout that is translucent so the light shines through it letting the glass sparkle. It is very expensive however. I would only use it where there is constant water spraying on the glass.

    I have done several GOG and they hung outside year around. No need to spray. As others have said the E6000 will hold just fine and it is much easier to clean windows when they need it. Just a little windex and a paper towel.

    I'm looking to do something similar indoors. Can you post a photo of the finished product?

    I've made multiple lights for out in my yard using glass beads glued with E6000 glue on both plastic and glass containers. They've held up for years, even with NE Pennsylvania winters. I never sprayed anything over them. So, I don't really think the spray will benefit the appearance or endurance. E6000 glue is amazingly durable. Good luck!
