I want to make some trinkets and buttons for some friends and myself but i'm not really sure which glue to go with.I wan't it to be pretty tough though! I'm looking for a good glue that will glue plastic to wood, the little wood "disks"  are going to be painted with acrylic paint.I tried the website: http://www.thistothat.com
And it say's to try Goop...but I have never used goop before. what are your opinions on GOOP and if you don't like it or you don't think it will work for me what else can I use?
thanks you all!

I've been using GOOP to glue magnets to glass beads and the only ones that have come loose were a few that got left in a hot car very soon after glueing. I think that screwed up the curing. I'm sure it would work really well on plastic and wood!

Another glue I have had good results with for wood anyway is Weld-Bond. It is a white glue but a very strong one, sold in hardware stores.

E6000 is my choice. It's really good at gluing most anything together. It holds well after a short time, but is at full strength after 24 to 72 hours.

hello color!

2-part epoxy is the best glue for hard-to-glue things. A very small area can resist a large amount of force (don't remember how much exactly), much more than force to which jewelry is usually subjected. It takes a while to cure, but plastic in general is difficult to bond with since it's so smooth. You may want to roughen up the plastic area (scratch it with sandpaper or a needle) to make the bond stronger, regardless of the glue that you use.

Another vote for E6000. No experience with Goop, so no help I'm afraid .
