This is the most common craft glue for porous lightweight materials such as paper, cardboard, cloth, and kids’ crafts. Titebond Original works sometimes but the Titebond II and III are exterior woods and tend to expand over time creating a raised glue joint. Excellent for bonding composites together, such as polystyrene to metal, wood to metal, plywood to concrete, stone to tile, etc. I have on e press that is set up for 5 x 7 mounted blocks that I use for student work. Sold under the brand name Gorilla Glue, among others, it is waterproof and can be used to bond everything from wood, fiberglass, and foam to stone, metal, and brick. At that point, the only remedy is to sand the piece again, removing enough material to eliminate the rubbed in glue.
I would use a solvent based construction adhesive like Liquid Nails, but you might want to call a glass shop and see if they sell anything specifically for hanging mirrors. Don’t let worry about true bleed-through affecting your choice in the veneer glue color. After 18 months of use in our shop we were pretty impressed with some of the properties of polyurethane glue. Once you get these larger sections it’s time to glue them all together to form your circular shape. It is important to get even, continuous glue coverage on the surfaces you want to join.
SikaBond-T21 may be used for solid and engineered wood floors (strips, longstrips, planks, panels, boards), mosaic parquet, industrial parquet, wood paving (residential) as well as chip boards and plywood. Some wipe excess glue away with a damp sponge, rag or paper towel before it sets up. Others leave the glue untouched until dry and then scrape the beads away.
This is because, in my experience, you’ll more than likely only get to use your super glue once or twice before the shelf life is up. So, by making the tubes smaller, you maximize your value. What I do is I pre-treat the glue joints with a chemical paint stripper before proceeding. When the fibers within two pieces of wood being joined are positioned correctly, modern adhesives can create a bond that is often stronger than the wood itself. We don’t want to use concrete, as it would totally take away from the beauty of the translucent nature of the glass. We do not recommend using Original or White Gorilla Glue in a syringe application, as it has a higher viscosity.
If however, you do not have access to this type of glue, you can order Elmer’s Wood glue for a reasonable price from us. Ensure the wood reaches equilibrium (for the long-term RH and temperature of the room) before it is installed to ensure minimal movement after the installation. These aerosol cans of adhesive are great for attaching paper and fabric since it doesn’t soak through porous materials like liquid glue would. But if it is applied to the face of the photo (so you are looking through the glass at it), it will make the photo look wet (as will about any other glue) where the glue was applied.
True bleed-through that comes through a clear (non-void) part of a veneer is usually caused by using too much glue and in that case, it really doesnt matter which tone you use because any bleed-through of that nature will not look good. Hot glue is often used to add flower or ribbon embellishment on wreaths, headbands and picture frames where stiffness and strength is not such a concern. Yellow wood glue is also water based – and is made of the same vinyl acetate polymers as craft glue.
