Topics: Art Clay® with Swarovski® crystal

Q.
I am interested in doing some work with metal clay, setting flat Swarovski crystals on the finished product. Is there a type of glue that will adhere the crystals to silver?

Devcon® Jeweler's 5-minute 2-part epoxy would work well for gluing Swarovski crystal flat backs to fired metal clay. It's an incredibly strong adhesive, dries clear and isn't affected by outside agents such as water, oil or gasoline--it is also what is recommended most when gluing crystals with foil backing. Be sure to use this product with adequate ventilation.
