    I would use an epoxy glue for outdoor use that dries clear and is waterproof. Loctite is one brand.

    An epoxy glue would work or you could use tile adhesive which is also waterproof.

    I use e6000 for all my outside projects. It holds up well.

    Epoxy Gorilla Glu8e Krazy Glue. Read Labels & make sure they are for the material you want to glue & is good for outdoor use 1st. Good Luck!

    Marine Goop works wonders. I used to use E6000 but once I found and started to use Marine Goop, I haven't looked back in using anything else that would be used for outside weather conditions.

    E6000 works best for me too. Apply to both objects you are gluing together and give it time to dry just a bit before you put the two together. The little dry time is the trick. It holds metal to metal, glass to glass, just about anything.

    Agree with Audrey... E6000 is the best. I use it on my glass work, gourds.

    I've used E6000 as well. I made a terra cotta pot "lady" for my mom years ago for her patio table and it has withstood the elements very well.

    I use Gorilla Glue.

      @Susan Only if you use the gorilla that doesn't expand or it it does, use very carefully.

    Just don't use one like Elmer's, which is washable. My daughter made flower pots for the family for Christmas and covered them with sand. Looked good until the humidity rose or it rained and then they were ruined.

    This question came up in another thread and someone said they use Liquid Nails Clear Seal. I use E6000 for everything, but when I used it for an outdoor piece, it only lasted a few months before coming unglued.

    Marine glue or outdoor caulking works pretty well for these types of projects. There's a silicone adhesive that works great, too, but I don't know the exact brand.
