E6000 is used to attach jewelry findings to your glass.
Jewelry findings can be bails, ear wires, jump rings, or whatever you are trying to attach.
The large tube will go a long way, as you only need a little of the adhesive to secure the piece.
The instructions are really quite simple.
Clean the piece, but not with soap.
Soap can leave a residue that will prevent the glue from adhering to the piece.
Rough the bail and the area on your glass piece where you are going to attach the bail.
Put a small amount of E6000 on the piece. Use enough glue so that some of it squeezes out from under the bail.
This will form a nice lock around your finding.
Use firm pressure as it is pressed it down.
Clean up any adhesive that might have spilled elsewhere on your glass.
Set it down and don’t move it for 24 hours.
This is important!
Don't even move your piece until it has cured for this minimum time period.
It is even better to leave it alone for a longer time.
A lot of individuals use the oven method.
Once the pieces are glued together, put them on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet.
Turn on the oven and heat to 185 degrees.
After about 10 minutes, place cookie sheet in the oven for about for 2 hours.
Turn off the oven and allow them to sit for about 24 hours. Handle gently for a few days.
To take a piece apart or remove E-6000, soak it in Goof Off or Oops overnight to get the glue to soften.
Once softened the pieces should come apart.
Use this product outside or in a well ventilated area.
