Putty is a paste that hardens over time. It is commonly used to seal glass panes in wooden framed windows. When adding putty to your windows, make sure to clean the rabbet thoroughly first. Roll the putty into strips long and thick enough just fit in tightly. Add the windows back into the rabbet, and install glazing pins without scratching the glass. Once added to support the glass, add another strip of putty to cover the glazing pins and cut off any excess putty to make it look physically appealing. Paint putty to match your window pane.
