    Have you tried Gorilla Glue?

    What would be helpful to know is what you are trying to glue. I have wood projects that have been exposed to the elements for years. My choice here is titebond III (the stuff in the green package) I have also used poly urethane based construction adhesive, epoxies etc. Matching the adhesive with the product is the first step.

    You have many different materials that a "One Glue fits all" may not be suitable. Here's what I use for gluing glass to glass, for outdoor use: Outdoor Silicone. For ceramics (small projects such as yours) 3M Ceramic Adhesive Outdoor Gel. For Plastic etc Loctite is easy to work with, plus it comes in many fabrications, or Rhino Glue. Both are inexpensive, easy and for the projects you're creating just might be the trick. Hope that helps! xo

    I always use Kwik Seal Clear Caulk. Holds up to weather, can be painted, and since it's silicone, it will give with the weather changes. Good luck!
