I am starting to do yard art by gluing different glass pieces together, i.e. plates, vases, etc. Problem is I don't know what type of glue to use. Thanks.

At Village Garden Web, according to a post by robin_ssi, "The best adhesive to use when you're working with glass is Weldbond. It dries clear, is non-toxic and it is waterproof when it dries." gardenweb.com (05/16/2009)
Here's the website where I got this information it's great when everyone glues anything together:
Glass to Glass
For the strongest, fastest, and most invisible bond we recommend:
If Loctite is not available in your area, or you live in Alaska in the winter where there is no available UV light, we recommend:
Another fast alternative that will do the job, but not as strong, is
If the bond has to hold up to solvents use:
The least toxic, yet not as strong, alternative is:
Whenever you are gluing glass you must consider the visibility of the adhesive. If the glass is translucent or transparent, you will want a glue that dries as clear as possible.
Before gluing any glass bond be sure that the glass is clean, free of any oil (even from your fingers) and dry.
I use E-6000. It's the best adhesive to use with glass. (05/21/2009)
