I use a latex acrylic caulk to bed the glass in the way recommended in the article and I have been happy with the results. I first started the practice over five years ago and I haven't noticed any problems with it.

However, I just received an email from DAP in response to my question about what they thought of the practice and they recommended against it. They suggested that the caulk might not cure completely behind the glass and moisture could be trapped.

I was happy to see it recommended here. It provides at least me with at least a sense that the 50 or so windows that I've done using the practice are probably all right. and I'm not the only guy to ever do it. I wonder if the author of this article could provide some information about his results with the practice.

I think I might switch to glazing compound in a tube for the bedding step. I know that's more pliable and it will probably be quicker to apply for this application. I tried it once and in general I didn't like it at all. But it might be just right for the bedding step.
