Best clear glue?


What is a good clear glue that can survive cold temps? Even though I’m in the south we do get below freezing. I like making glass garden totems but the glue has not held up over the winter here in middle Tennessee. I was using e6000, which I thought would work. I prefer to leave them outside over winter as it adds some visual interest.

    Read label and see if they have a temperature range. If you use a computer, look online for craft glues that would meet your needs. If you have some local artisans in your community, you might take the product you are using to them and see if they might be able to answer your question. Also see if your local schools, colleges have art classes available and ask the instructor.

    I've had great success with 100% silicone -- like is used for aquariums .. has held up well with exceptionally cold / icy/ snowy weather .. but there is no 'stress' on the attachments -- simply for decorative use ...

    Your ? was cut off; but......... Personally, we like the GE acrylic that come in a caulking-type-tube at Walmart. Dries clear and is weather-tough even during our winters! Great for glass projects!
