I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
I really like the frame. It's sturdy and well made. In the one I've opened, there's a little imperfection in the glass that's not noticeable if it's set at the bottom (horizontal) side of the frame. It showed a plot more at the top.The mat is off white. I was expecting white. I can still use it, though. For the price, it can't be beat.
