Best glue for clear acrylic on wood?

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.

I would do a little re-design so you can do this:

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.
