Hi Antonio,

Good question! I have used many different types of glue to hold pieces in place for one reason or another. Elmer’s white glue works fine. As does transparent tape, or E 6000 glue or clear silicone adhesive. While super glue will work, it can release corrosive vapors which can harm the kiln or anyone near the kiln as it is being fired.

Another glue is liquid hair spray. As with all glues the question is what kind of strength is needed to hold the piece together in transient from the point of origin to the kiln. Elmer’s is probably your best bet, but if you have small pieces that don’t have far to go and with little vibration, then hair spay would probably be okay also.

Hope this help —
