  • 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.

      Toni,

      Another great site is www.thistothat.com
      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.

                  Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                  And on each cloud touching the body ?
                  I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                  Thanks

                  I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                  Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                  What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                  Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
