Glue advice

Hi. Am after advice on glue…
What is best to use on findings and cabochons? I’ve tried loads but nothing seems to hold
Thanks x

hello -
a very strong glue is E6000 - has quite a lot of warnings on it about fumes though etc.
Seems to work v. well.

What are you trying to glue the findings/ cabochons onto - metal/ fabric/ wood/ plastic? You need to make sure you’ve keyed (roughed up a bit) the surfaces being glued so that the glue has something to grip to then something like the E6000 that Sally mentions should do the trick.

E6000 is the way to go

Cleaning both surfaces to remove grease and residue from things such as skin contact is a must as well. Keying the surfaces too. You can never be too fastidious when permanently bonding surfaces together.

I use E6000 for my cabochons, it does have a strong smell so I try & avoid using it when my little one is about & if possible open the windows. However in saying that you really don’t need to use very much so I find the tube lasts ages.
