As Bruce mentioned, a search for either glue or glass chipping will yield considerable information on the Hand Lettering forum using the search tab at the top.
A good source for information can be found on 'The Letterhead Site', top of The Hand Lettering page, right side.
For glass chipping, grades and types of glue, look under Feature Articles > Rick Glawson - Daddy Fine Gold. Scroll to the bottom and look through the list of topics from notes by Rick and others.
It's best to buy glue from a source that specifically sells glue for glass chipping, as not all hide glues will chip. The information is listed in Rick's notes , found here:http://www.theletterheads.com/glawson/gluechip.html
In that section is this: NOTE: Only one type of glue will work for this process. It is a low grade, dry, animal hide glue with an approximate 165 gram strength and designated as glass chipping glue. High strength hide cabinet glues or gilder rabbit skin glues are very elastic and will not work. Neither do white or yellow wood working glues.
