Does anyone know if woodweld plastic resin glue dries clear? I am doing a paper mache project that I want to be durable and have a clear finish and have been pointed to woodweld for the durability aspect.

If woodweld is opaque, perhaps someone could suggest something else.

Thanks to the forum.

Sorry, I’ve never used the weldwood. I have used polyester resin, the stuff used with fiberglass, to fill holes on a table made of wormy chestnut. It is not opaque but is not actually clear. You can see through it, depending how thick you make it. It is extremely durable and may serve your purpose. It is readily available at any auto parts store and is relatively cheap. Might be worth looking into.

Dries a brown color. Also, since it is so HARD, don’t use a jointer or planer to remove squeeze out. It will dull your blades VERY fast. I use a belt sander to remove squeeze out.

I use the stuff all the time and love it!

Whoever handed you the advice got 1/2 of right, the Weldwood is durable. I’m not familiar with any glue that dries perfectly clear….just plain white glue may come as close as anything.

I’ve used WELDBOND and it dries clear. I’ve used it on several projects and it works very well. Here’s a link:
