  • I use E6000, it was what my fused glass teacher recommended for something I broke and I use it for many things now.

      Thank you Elizabeth.....I wondered about this product....I am in a Children's Charity Group and always trying to come up.with Artisan ideas for our annual Marketplace. ....I have been watching Pinterest and they have some wonderful ideas for making glass bird baths out of recycled glass which would have to be glued with quality clear glue and able to take the outdoor elements. Thanks again

      You can also look into an epoxy glue suitable for outdoors on larger projects.

    I have also had success with E600 but- make sure that the pieces are held together for a few minutes to ensure proper setting or it may dry a bit thicker and messier than you'd like. Good luck!!

    Several other artists and I have discovered 527 glue holds up better than E6000. I use it for all my glue projects. It's available a lot places including online. I get mine at Michaels. I have "gem trees" that have lasted 20 years.

    Thes glues are available at most craft shops, i.e. Michels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, and others. They come in a tube usually and are cost effective as well as durable.
