What type of glue would work best for attaching items made of various materials (wood, glass, rocks, etc.) to plastic---for use outdoors? Thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge and experiences!

I use gorilla glue for small projects(be careful, wear gloves..it will turn your fingers black); I use liquid nails and a caulking gun for bigger projects. Hope this helps.

I looked at the GE website and saw two types of GE Silicone II listed. One is called "Household Glue," while the other one mentions exterior applications: "GE Silicone II Metal Glue and Seal is a 100% silicone sealant that offers excellent adhesion and maximum performance in exterior applications." Which is the one that you use?

GE Silicone II - the sealant for indoor/outdoor use. I've used it to adhere glass to plastic, rocks to wood and plastic and glass, glass to glass, ceramic and porcelain to wood and plastic and metal, etc. You name it, I've used it!

I used it on a piece which I mosaiced and placed outside and forgot to bring in for the winter. The porcelain pieces are still stuck to the wood, but the wood warped and the grout has broken in some places. Tried to pry some of the pieces off yesterday, but they are on there for good!

Silicone is great stuff for many applications but for a fail proof bond you can go to polyurathane.

The PL brand is available at Home Depot. I would suggest the Outdoor Project or even better the Premium Construction Adhesive.

Does anybody use E6000 for outside projects? I use it a lot, but can't remember if I used it for outside.

I use GE Marine silicone and in the past I've used "Fix All" Here is a plastic globe I used stained glass and GE Marine Silicon on, then grouted with outdoor grout and sealed said grout with outdoor grout sealer...It looks cool lit up!!
