Gerry, that is great news...I will be over to see your blog soon.
Glad I was of some help. I was worried too about what I would blog ...but I just blog whatever my heart tells me to do.

Does your granddaughter have a Studio? How long has she been a photographer..??
I had a Portrait Studio for 15 years before I retired.

WELCOME TO THE LAND OF BLOG !!!

I love the old painted backdrops. If I were a professional photographer, I certainly would revive that art form. They were amazing! :)

What a gorgeous backdrop it was! It's hard to find that kind of work these days.

You stopped by my blog and asked about E6000 for glass on glass.

E6000 is a fantastic rubber based glue that works on glass, wood, plastic, metal, ceramic, and more.

I have used it for glass to glass, and it dries nice and clear, creates a water tight seal, and won't melt down or allow for the glass to be peeled apart like hot glue will.

It dries very strong. If you want a temporary hold, go with hot glue. If you want permanent, go with E6000.

I found it for under $3/tube at Walmart. It does take time & pressure to dry. Set something heavy on the object to make sure the seal is nice and tight, and leave it to sit over night.

I've used it on wood to glass, glass to glass, and wood to wood with fantastic results every time.

At Walmart, it was in the craft area, by the hot glue guns. I know craft stores also carry it, though.

Pam, I had all my canvas backgrounds painted by a gal that did that for a living..she was fantastic. Also a wonderful photographer as well.
She would come to my studio for a few days..then she and I would "develop" the perfect background for my needs.

HATED to part with them when I had to close my studio.
I kept one muslin one she painted for me...and use it still today. ~Glad I did.
