Gluing With E6000 - Instructable Robot Magnet



Introduction: Gluing With E6000 - Instructable Robot Magnet

About: I MAKE in my sleep. I MAKE for keeps. I MAKE I MAKE I MAKE creative me.

I use glue on, pretty much, a daily basis. Whether it being to repair items, costuming or just creating, it consumes a great amount of time. Don't get me wrong, I love to glue things together. I have found that E6000 glue is suitable for most of my needs and is pretty easy to work with.

Here are some things to consider when gluing things together:

  • Clean the items you wish to glue
  • Glue in a well ventilated area
  • Do not use too much glue
  • Do not glue your fingers together

E6000 glue works well with a variety of products:

  • Glass
  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Ceramic
  • Fabric
  • And much more

In this Instructable I will be creating refrigerator magnets from Shrinky Dinks.

Step 1: Let's Create


  • Scissors
  • E6000 Glue
  • Toothpick
  • Table Protector - a piece of cardboard
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Refrigerator
  • Well Ventilated Workspace


  1. After you have created your robot, trace it onto your magnet. Be sure to trace on the printed side as this is the side we will glue to the Shrinky Dink.
  2. Now cut the magnet with scissors. Cut just inside of your line so the magnet does not show behind the robot.
  3. Compare them to be sure you have a good fit.
  4. Spread the E6000 glue onto your magnet making sure that you don't use too much glue.
  5. Place the magnet onto the back side of your robot and press firmly.
  6. Let the glue dry for at least 15 minutes and you should be ready to stick it to your fridge.
  7. Kick back and enjoy.
