    We had someone toss a brown glass beer bottle behind our barn when I was young. It lit the back 40 into a field fire one day. does this glass art ever do that? I don't see the end result or where it is used.

    I don't remember how I happened upon your video but — THANK YOU!  You inspired me to create my own garden art.  I have a little patch of dirt in front of my home, in which I have 3 miniature roses.  Otherwise, it looked so bare. After seeing your video, I went to a thrift shop and bought 2 clear vases and 1 wine glass. I also bought 3 clear glass bowls.  I came home, cleaned all like you suggested and then flipped the bowls upside down to create little glass mushrooms, which I decorated with buttons.  They are not only adorable but a great hit with my neighbors!  With my larger vase, I put inside of it some metallic bow, with streamers, and then decorated the outside. I wonder how long all of these will last in the hot southern Utah summer sun?  Thanks!

    thanks for the information. I have a large plate with a textured back that I'm trying to attach to stake, Did you use 100% silicone the first time when your large plate fell. I guess i'm asking is what did you do different?  Thanks

    This may be fine for upcycling glassware from the 80s and later, but a lot of these things are being made with older collectible glassware like depression glass, and mid-century glassware. Someone in San Francisco is making cake stands out of Fenton milk glass comports with acrylic and china plates glued to them. It's a shame to be ruining valuable vintage glassware for cheesy art projects.
