glass beads 0.4mmOther ways you can decorate a bird house is with mosaic art. You can buy tiles or glass beads 0.4mm and glue them to the bird house with waterproof glue (see my waterproof glass glue recipe here).

Just be careful that you do not cut yourself in the process. Always break the glass inside a bag that is covered by a towel (then tap with a hammer) and sand the edges (wear gloves while sanding).

Another change was in the materials that were used to make these markings. Obviously, paint was used when the first pavement markings were made. The first of these pavement markings was simply a white center line painted on the road. When yellow was mandated as the color of choice for center lines, road workers had to resort to using lead chromate paint because of the material’s insolubility in water and its bright yellow color. Because of the toxicity of lead chromate, workers had to take extra precautions when having to remove road markings which used these materials.

Bead size can seem quite confusing if one is not familiar with the three units of measurement. Some manufacturers measure beads in aughts, which refers to the number of beads able to fit into a standard unit. Others use millimeters and still other bead manufacturers use a beads per inch measurement. The most common size of seed bead is 11/0 or eleven-aught. In millimeters that is 1.8, and 20 beads per inch. In bulk form, seed beads are sold either by ‘hanks’ or by grams. A hank is a bundle or 12 strands of 20 inches of strung beads. Japanese beads in particular are sold in grams.
