Adhesive / epoxy recommendation


#1

Hi all,

I need a black adhesive/epoxy recommendation for securing small
turquoise stones into a steel bracelet. I will need to place the
adhesive only in the small spaces left using a very small tip of some
kind…

There should be a picture here:

Thank you very much

You can use 330 two part epoxy and mix in a small amount of lamp
black. You can Google lamp black and will usually find it at art
suppliers that sell paint pigments.

Robert-I just use a fine cut file and file off a bit of a charcoal
block andmix it into the epoxy.

Have fun and make lots of jewelry.

Try Rio Grande Jewelry supply. Epoxy enamel I think would work best
for whatyou want to do. You can use a hypodermic needle to inject it
where you need it

Try mixing epoxy with lampblack, candle soot, activated charcoal or
powdered black pigment from an art supply store.

I’ve done this for years.

Hello, Robert;

You could get a catalytically setting resin such s “Duranamel”. Most
suppliers like Stuller and Rio have that under various brand names.
It’s basically just colored epoxy.

Hi Robert;

Have you tried an epoxy based glue called “J B Weld”. it is dark
gray almost black when mixed.

Hi Robert - a product called Apoxie Sculpt has the advantage of
being able to be rolled into small balls to be tucked into small
spaces. And it does not require as much cleanup as a liquid product
does. It also comes in many colours.

Hello Robert

There is a product called Durenamel that is used with the 'Colores"
brand colored resins that allows for many different colors including
black.

Enclosed is a video or search the web by typing in ‘How to use
Durenamel’.

Can be mixed with very small amount of black acrylic paint ot liquid
antiquing sokution. You may want to increase hardener a tiny amount.
It takes very little to color epoxy.

You might like to try a product called “Apoxie Sculpt”. It’s a two
part epoxy resin putty, mixed by hand (with plastic/nitrile gloves).
It would be placed in the channel and the stones embedded into the
resin. It dries (sets) completely in 24 hours and is waterproof and
can be buffed and waxed to a lovely sheen. Excess can be removed
easily before it sets, but it can also be carved and sanded after
setting. You have 2 hours working time. No affiliation with the
product. I just like using it.
