HELP! Crafty Ladies Needed Within!

Okay ladies, I really hope you can help me out. Some of you may remember my punk rock black vases.


Okay ladies I really photo 3426629-1


I used hot glue to affix the pyramid studs to the glass and I thought they were fine, until I picked them up! Half of the studs are missing from each of my vases. I tried putting them back on with another round of hot glue, but it's not holding.


Advice? Any products that work on glass that hold fast? I really don't want to lose these as they really make an awesome statement. =(

Try using this craft glue called E6000. It is commonly used on many things and I have used it in my crafting and it holds well!

I don't know anything about craft glue, but I do know that not much sticks to glass! it's non pourous, so you really need something SUPER strong!


If I were you I would go to home depot and pick up some 2 part epoxy. I have used this to stick broken chunks of glass to some of my mixed media paintings on plywood. It comes in a double headed syringe looking thing. You squeeze it out, mix it up and apply it with a tong depressor or something like that. They have ones with different dry times, some dry fast and some dry sloooow, so read the lables. You may have to hold them in place for a few secondsThat will hold it for sure, just make sure your neat!

Also, would Gorrilla Glue work in this situation? In my experience that has been a really effective adhesive.

Thanks ladies! I'm planning to pick up both kinds and give them each a test run. I'll let you know how it goes! =)
