Re: best glue for broken pottery

You can buy E6000 at any hardware store, probably most art stores. It
is just silicone glue. Another glue just like it is GOOP. You remove
the excess with lacquer thinner on a q-tip. Read the precautions...this
is a great glue, but it is not a KID glue. I always apply it for kids
when we need to use it. Do it in a well ventilated area, get it off
your hands quickly (try not to get it on in the first place), and recap
it immediately. IF you leave the cap off, it migrates up and out of the
tube like a slithery slug...ends up all over your counter in a fairly
quick time. My tubes almost always get to a point where I can't
squeeze it out of the tip any longer. When that happens, I take a nail
and poke a hole in the tube and keep the tube on a piece of waxed paper
in case it drips out before it just cures over the little poke hole. It
works great on plastic, ceramics, metal (pin backs REALLY stay on with
this stuff.) it sticks to anything.
