What Glue should I use?
A question that is often asked in online forums is, “What glue should I use for my project?” When it comes to gluing different materials together, there isn’t a one glue fits all. Here is a list of what glues I usually use for projects.
When I am gluing projects made out of:
Wood: wood glue, 3M adhesive
Acrylic to the wood: super glue, Tacky glue, 3M adhesive, E6000
Acrylic to acrylic: an acrylic solvent like Weld-on acrylic adhesive. (It creates an almost clear, tight, waterproof seal).
Something to acrylic: super glue, 3M adhesive
COLORboard: Tacky glue, wood glue, 3M adhesive
Something to COLORboard: super glue, 3M adhesive
COLORflex: E6000 or superglue
Shell Veneer: 3M adhesive, superglue
There are a lot of different adhesives out there that we haven’t tried yet, so try them and see what works best for you.
