glue for glass

maumau27girlsOctober 24, 2012

OK, I "lurked" on here a couple of years ago, and love everything on here. NOW, I want to finally do some "plate flowers" and also am going to do a fountain, and need to know what kind of glue I need. Please excuse the "clutter" (for lack of better name). We were just playing around with it. Pump and new diamond bits(I need to drill larger holes in new pieces) should be in Sat so maybe we can put it together.

thanks

Welcome again Maumau~

Most of us who do totems and birdbaths, etc. use GE Silicone II for glass. Make sure when you get a tube that you check the expiration date as that will affect it's holding power. Good luck with your creations and don't forget to show us when you're finished!

Remember to buy CLEAR. GE silicone II for windows and doors clear.
Good luck and have fun.

I'm the oddball of the bunch, I use E6000. You can find it Walmart, hobby lobby, Michaels etc. I did three GOG windows three years ago and hung them on the outside garage wall and the glue is still holding! AS Marlene says watch the expiration Date.

Chelcass - I used E-6000 too , on mosiacs .You're not an oddball !!! It does hold great ! One of the reasons I like GE silicone on totems is that it grabs the glass pieces alittle faster. The stuff still slides around , but alittle less with silicone .

********** All of us here are oddballs in our own way ! LOL That's why we get along so good :)

LOL, your right we are and we do. I have never been about to find the GE Silicone. Maybe when I go to Menard I will be able to find it.

Thanks to all, and I agree with "toomuchglass" We are all "oddballs" in our own way, but that is OK!!! What would the world be like without such!!!!! Hope my pumps come in today so hubby and I can put our first fountain together.

Just found out about a great glue for glass mosaics to glass like windows. It was developed by an artist. Quick drying, crystal-clear, water resistant, great for outdoors. Mac Glue. However, it runs $20/8 oz. But it works.

Here is a link that might be useful: Mac Glue

I love Mac glue for mosaics and some other things but it doesn't work for me for plate flowers.
