I have a large decorative mirror in my living room. The middle part became unglued and fell down. It did not break. Now I need to know how to glue it back so it will not fall again. Any ideas?

We use clear silicone sealant, it's a great adhesive.

DO NOT USE SILICONE AS A MIRROR ADHESIVE-ONLY A SPECIAL FORMULATION-ACID FREE NUETRAL CURE,CAN BE USED.IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME,EVEN YEARS,BUT IT WILL EVENTUALLY EAT THE BACKING AND REFLECTIVE LAYER OFF.
GO TO THE CAULKING/ADHESIVE SECTION OF THE HARDWARE STORE AND READ THE LABELS FOR ONE WHICH LISTS MIRROR AS AN APPROPRIATE MATERIAL.OR GO TO A GLASS SHOP AND BUY MIRROR MASTIC.ASK A PROFESSIONAL FOR ADVICE PERTINENT TO YOUR SITUATION,THEY WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY TO HELP.
