Newbee with a question

nullclueMay 9, 2007

Hi everyone. First, I know 0 about ceramics and clay, so please excuse my ignorance. Here is my question.

I have a ceramic figure that is glazed that I'm try to attach objects to for an art project (I'm assisting a friend with the project). The objects are metal, and the bond must endure the weather. What glue, or other bonding agent do you recommend? I've thought of drilling a hole in the ceramic figure to attach a stud to use as an anchor, is there a special drill bit to use on glazed ceramics?

Thanks for ANY help you can give me.

There are glass and ceramic drill bits but use caution and go slow when drilling, I always use water to keep the bit cool as I drill.

Weather proof glue for metal to glazed ceramic...hmmm, you might try this site for adhesive advice:
