  • Glue to make button rings

    Hi before I waste any more money and move onto glue number 5 can any one recommend a glue to stick buttons together and then the buttons to metal ring blanks?

    I have tried Helmars tacky craft glue, Loctite 496, B&Q all purpose glue and UHU all purpose adhesive.

    any tips would be great
    thank you

    I wonder if evostick contact adhesive would work. They use it for laminate and formica which are both plastic. It sticks instantly though so you would have to be careful you get it right first time.
    Otherwise how about this

    Hopefully someone else who has actually tried it will reply though.

      I always use a glue gun takes some getting used to at first but once you get the hang of them you will never go that and they bond just about everything if your thinking this sounds expensive you would be suprised you can pick up a gun for about £6.99 and 12 glue sticks for a £1.00 in a local high street store

            When I was making jewellery in bulk for store groups I bought glue and little dispensing bottles with needle nozzles from a spe******t company. Now I use UHU power glue, as I found that the hot glue gun stuff wasn't strong enough. I guess everyone has a different method which works for them.

              I've heard from a lot of crafters on here that E600 glue will stick anything!

                I would also recommend a glue gun for what you want to do. I got mine for £1.99 from Home Bargains! I have had a few years and it's not fell to bits yet

                  E600 will outstick most things for jewellery making.

                    Devcon 5 minute epoxy is fantastic, it is extremely strong and dries quickly...

                      I totally agree. I won't use anything else.

                        When sticking anything I always used to reach for the Araldite...it doesn't dry instantly so you've got that little bit of time to move something that's not quite right, but I seem to remember it does take a while to set completely which might not be ideal if you're making multiple rings that'll all need a place to stand and set :-s
