Hello guys,
I am new to this community, but hoping you fellow crafters can help me please  Grin
I have been seeing this colored glue everywhere but have NO IDEA what it's called or where you get! It comes in all colors and is used on shoes and cell phone cases for gluing embellishments onto.. It looks like a glue gel maybe??? It must be very strong to be used on such heavily used items.. Does anyone know what this might be?? I had tried to upload a pic of it but it wont let me and when I uploaded in the crafter photo hosting the pic just disappeared lol... Thank so much Wink Cheesy Cheesy

I would wonder if it is a two part resin you are thinking about, tinted with colour to suit the item.

It can be, depending on what your purpose it.  What are you trying to glue together specifically?

There are various types of resin out there, including fast 5 minute ones, and slow drying ones, and ones that need UV light to dry.  I was thinking that the slower ones you can add colorants to to make it the colour you need.  If you need a faster hold, you can use a 5 minute epoxy resin like Devcon which comes in 1 to 10 minute drying formulas, and you can probably colour over it.

Then there are also the 2 part epoxy clay resins like Apoxie Clay or Crystal Clay which come in different colours, are the consistency of clay, and are used for sculpting, or jewelry - the two parts mix together and when kneaded well, can be molded or decorated with embellishments, or used to hold things together.  They have a working time often of about a couple of hours or so, before starting to dry, and are likely fully dry in 24 hours.  When dried, they can be sanded, filed, etc, and can be painted.  When still tacky, powdered colour, like mineral pigments can be applied, or colorants like small amounts oil paint can be kneaded into the clay too.

The e6000 glue works well and is strong, but this glue i have seen looks really good!

When I took a workshop for embellishing with Swarovski crystals in jewely, the glue the Swarovski rep recommended was 2 part 5 minute setting resin, like Devcon 5.  He did tell us that he had a customer who decorated her shoes with the method he was showing us.  It dries clear so what you may be seeing is the colour of her shoes showing.  You mix up small batches at a time from the measured syringes, and mix it up, then work in small areas at a time.  It is not as viscous as E6000, so I find the finish is much nicer, at least until the resin starts to set up more (in which case, it is time to mix up a new wee little batch).

Thank you! Can you add color to the setting resin? It definitely is a colored because I have seen it on a black heel and the glue is glittery red?? So I wonder if they are just mixing color into the setting resin, but wouldn't know how they would do that?  Undecided
