Gluing Glass To Glass

I want to make a glass birdbath from clear and colored glassware. These pieces may be heavy and I want to know what glue would be heavy duty enough to hold them together?

Thank you.

You can either use a Super Glass Glue to glue your glass pieces together or a Crystal Clear Epoxy. I personally would use the epoxy because it will give you a strong joint. Be sure to follow these steps when gluing your glass pieces together:

Step 1
Make sure all your pieces are clean and dry.

Step 2
Align your pieces together before gluing them.

Step 3
Make sure you don't leave any fingerprints on the glass surface. The oils and sweat from your hands can interfere with the bonding process.

Make sure you lightly sandpaper the parts before you glue them with E-6000 glue which you can get at Walmart. Here is a link to what the glue looks like:

Gorilla Glue would be a good choice.

Sounds like you will be doing a rather large item and small tubes of glue will get pretty expensive. One problem that people have with a project like this is when the size of the pieces are very large the glue in the middle will not always dry properly so if possible do not use oversized pieces.
E-6000 or Gorilla (glass formula) seem to be the most recommended glues for outside projects. All glass pieces will have to be lightly sanded if you want any glue to work properly.

Since this is a big project, you may want to experiment with a smaller item and see which glue works best for you.

I use 2 part epoxy for this-- it's the best

I would say silicon, the kind you get to make aquariums would be best considering the weight involved in the project

Gorilla glue will work and so will a lot of hot glue
