What kind of glue do you use? I have trouble attaching sculpey or fimo or whatever to anything metal.

I have no problems using craft glue for wood... but metal has been a problem.

I dont use glue at all.  We put the pin inside the scupey.  Ill have to do a little tutorial sometime.  Basically the head of the pin is covered and the pin part sticks out, make sense?

If you can't embed the push pin (or tack, etc.) in the clay, you'll probably do best with a 2-pt epoxy glue or a silicone glue like E-6000.  Superglues should work too but they need a good sized area of exactly matching surfaces. 
If you can create even a partial "mechanical" hold by pressing the clay around the head a little, that should keep the clay on (if you have some of a plastic pushpin exposed though, it may be that it will distort a little in the baking, but don't know). 

There's more info on making push pins and tacks with polymer clay on this page for anyone interested:

...click on Tacks-pins) under Other Ideas & Misc.Techniques... )

P.S.  Since these will get a lot of stress in use, it'd be better to use a strong clay brand (Premo, FimoClassic, Kato Polyclay, or Cernit) rather than a weaker one (Sculpey, FimoSoft) if not making rounded thick clay parts, etc.
