What’s the best glue to prevent glue from showing through clear acrylic glued to wood?
Is there a special application technique to prevent the glue from showing?
Here I used a few dots of clear glorilla glue gel, and I’m not happy with the results. Any suggestions are appreciated.
You could try the 3M tape. Whatever you use, you’ll want to cover the whole surface of the wood because otherwise you get some discolored places. I actually sandwich the acrylic between layers or cover it with a veneer to avoid dealing with this.
Deja vu, man!
A quick search of “acrylic wood glue“, like this:
Will find so many answers to your question. This one in particular seems to be what you need:
Looking for a glue that would look good for gluing clear acrylic onto wood? Something clear.
I’ve been racking my brain for this project!
Welcome to the forum, definitely use that search to get literally years of good answers
I would do a little re-design so you can do this:
So cut out both parts of the bauble from one piece, but why doesn’t the inner fall out when assembled?
Here’s a trick you can use on your own baubles. The inner doesn’t fall out because it the whole bauble is slightly oval, rather than circular. So the inner just rotates 90 degrees for tight fit.
So, please feel free to use any way you want.
No glue required.
Cool. Thanks for sharing.
Unfortunately that trick won’t keep the glitter in place, lol. I have two pieces of acrylic sandwiching the wood design so I could add some floating glitter.
I will definitely try that for a different project.
