What advice would you give someone starting this project? Using the correct glue. You need a weather poof glue that will not crack , peel, or yellow in the sunlight yet will hold thru rain and garden waterings.

Try Lexel Sealant. The clear sealant goes on clear, dries clear and stays clear. I've tried many glues, sealants and caulk and this product is superior to all. I have a "plate flower" that has endured all 4 seasons of the mid-Atlantic for 4 years. Make sure your glass is free of dirt and oil. Allow 2 weeks to cure completely. If you are one who needs instant gratification, this product is not for you.

I'm using 3M Marine grade silicone adhesive and it's great. Problem I'm having is when using a square glass bottle on the back to pop the rebar into, it twirls around -- I like the idea of not having to use/drill a hockey puck and saw this method used by a vendor selling plates at an art show. But I want mine to be less twirly! Any ideas?
