So, did you know that you can make a broken glass mosaic with Mod Podge Ultra? This week I have used this new product on glitter, fabric, paper, and twine. Now it is time to really put it to the test. Will it hold glass? Making mosaics with broken glass is easy but what product do you use to glue on the glass? I might just have something you want to try! Remember that this is Craft Lightning Decoupage week so be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see today’s craft ideas as well.

Using Broken Glass for Mosaics
Remove the glass from inside your picture frame and lay the entire thing on a large piece of wax paper to protect your work surface. Shake the Mod Podge Ultra well and prime the pump by spraying the product on the wax paper until it sprays evenly.
Spray the burlap inset with the Mod Podge Ultra and start laying the glass chips right on top.
Continue all the way around the frame then spray the entire thing with another coat of Mod Podge Ultra. Allow this to dry overnight. You will need to clean the pump of your spray bottle by removing it and running water through it.
After your project is dry, remove any loose glass pieces and repeat the process. Layering the glass pieces until you are happy with the look. I did three layers for my broken glass mosaic frame.

So, does Mod Podge Ultra do the job? The answer is a resounding yes! The glass is really on the frame and I am totally impressed. This stuff does a great job with your paper projects but you may want to think of it when you have something more robust as well.

I mean just look at this frame and how cute it is! I love the way this broken glass mosaic turned out and can’t wait to tackle more glass projects with Mod Podge Ultra.
