Idea for adhesive needed

Post by Sunkach » Thu, 14 Aug 1997 04:00:00



I recently started experimenting with using pressed flowers and leaves
between glass.  The problem which I am encountering is that the flowers
and leaves tend to slip around on the glass.  I would like to find an
adhesive that someone else has used successfully.  My experiments are
becoming expensive.  What I have found is that Elmer's glue yellows over
time, and crazy glue or super glue frosts when you solder near it.  If
anyone knows of an adhesive which could be used in this way, please e-mail

yeah, Vicki Payne always used a dab of *** cement. she left some on
the brush, and positioned it so the cap was on the table, and the brush
was in the air. then she dabbed the flattened flower on the cement (not
much), and placed it on the glass. as long as a little is used no one
should see the glue.

Most glassworkers seem to prefer Goop and E6000.  I've had good results
with both.  For a truly clear adhesive, you can't beat one of the UV
glues, but to adhere them you need a UV lamp (not the sun) and the lamps
are expensive.  Depends whether you plan to sell the item I would guess.
Good luck.  Barbara

You might also choose to experiment with***in small amounts.  I have
used it for a number of purposes including tacking pieces together for
transit to the kiln for fusing.  a few small "dots" of***should
serve to hold the flowers in place while any soldering is done.  

Another possibility is to use silicone adhesives.  A bit more messy, but
does not harden for a long time, nor discolour.
