The Best Glue for the Job
Top 3 Adhesives
After trying every adhesive on the market these have to be my favorites.
1. E-6000 my clear adhesive of choice, when working with glass on glass.
This is a toxic adhesive that is not recommended when working with children.
DIRECTIONS & TIPS FOR USING E-6000:
Apply E-6000 directly to each surface to be bonded.
Note: E-6000 hardens by solvent evaporation and forms an immediate bond that is difficult to reposition after both adhesive coated surfaces are placed in contact with each other and sufficient pressure is exerted to establish full contact.
SPECIAL TIPS: To extend life of product, be sure cap is secured back to original position. Use a toothpick as a disposable applicator for very small applications such as beading. Remove, recap and allow plastic nozzle to dry. Remove dried product from nozzle by pulling out through threaded end and reuse nozzle.
SAFETY FIRST: You can never predict what glass will do when you are working with it. When gluing glass on glass with E6000 when it’s stuck … it’s really stuck. NEVER and I mean NEVER try to remove glass from glass, once it has set up with one of these glue. Always wear safety glasses!
2. Weldbond Adhesive – The Kid Friendly Glue
There are so many reasons why Weldbond is my adhesive of choice for indoor mosaic tile and found object art projects.
- It’s non-toxic and has no smell.
- Great for projects with kids.
- Weldbond dries clear … in most circumstances.
- Easy to remove mistakes
and then there’s Mastic
… available at home improvement & tile shops.
You Can Glue It but …
Patience, my dear.
I know you want to get’r done but in the end you’ll be thankful that you waited until it dried.
Thanks for sticking around!
When in doubt… read the directions.
