Hello, first, I'm thrilled to find this site. I've been reading some wonderful stories and also enjoyed seeing various projects being shown. This is a great place!

Recently I purchased some glass globes with metal tops. These are the filigree lids. They're very pretty, but I'm having a hard with finding ways to seal them.

Should I use epoxy resin? Or E6000? I'm at a loss. Crazy glue sounded like a good idea at first, but now, I'm not so sure. Any ideas? I want to get this project started but have run into a wall.

Thank you in advance!  Smiley

Hi and welcome! Smiley

I would suggest using E6000. It dries quick and should hold the two pieces well.

Thank you! I have some, I was told by my brother, of all people, that I need to let it sit a bit before sealing. I had to smile at this since I was making these and he's chimed in with some great suggestions, but to be honest, since he wasn't into it. He's the origami master in the family, but this? We shall see.  Smiley

I'll share picture when I get them finished. Fingers crossed! Thank you again!
