Jewelry FAQ : Epoxy


Q: What is the best epoxy for my project?

A: Artbeads.com currently offers two different two-part epoxy adhesives. One has a one-hour dry time, the other is five minutes. Both glues come in a syringe pack that squeezes out two even lines at the same time. We recommend placing a small amount on an index card and then mixing just a bit with a toothpick as needed. The glue is not activated until it is mixed, and will not start drying until activated. The five minute and one-hour titles refer to drying times. While the five-minute may be more inviting, we only recommend this for small, simple projects, or more advanced designers. The biggest concern with a fast dry time is that if you need to move something you may not be able to. The one-hour is fairly versatile and most designers find it adequate for their projects. Remember, all epoxies have extremely strong fumes. Always use in a well ventilated area. You can find epoxy in the Adhesives section of Tools and Supplies on our web site.
