  • Glue on Plexi

    I am working a pattern this evening and decided it would look so much better cut out of plexiglass/lexan, but I need to use glue on it.

    Does anyone know of a glue that is pliable for a couple minutes, stays transparent and would not show on plexiglass/lexan?

    I know someone on here will come up with an answer for me so I will start re cutting the pattern.

    You will want to read about it on there site. I have seen it occasionally at Lowes and Home Depot.

      Another great site is
      It's basically an adhesive database where you plug in what you want to glue to what--and it will make suggestions. I plugged in Plastic to Plastic and got a couple suggestions--household Goop and 5 minute epoxy...

      I would also suggest clear silicone...

        I like to use E6000 clear It can be found in any craft store and (Home Depot but not sure?) It stays flexible and clear and can be painted. Gluing a plastic to wood can cause problems because wood moves and plastic doesn't. Here is an example of this glue use.

          Those are excellent works you did there JT. When are you going to post those to the gallery so some of us can take a closer gander at your process?

                Sorry for not getting back to you Grizz, but I decided to go with the household goop since I had it in the shop. How did it turn out? Hell, it never got that far. Having a workout just cutting the plexi. Obviously not my usual brand....

                So, when I am done the cut, and on to the glue - I'll let you know how the Goop worked. Giggle.

                  Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                  Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                  I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                  I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

                  The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

                  Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:

                  Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www....
