Glue help

Hello, i'm going mad looking for the right glue for this purpose: i need to glue, for a project, tiny pieces of wood on Painted terracotta. I need not necessarily a super strong bond but a very fast curing time and a clear finish. I tried almost everything, spry glue (doesnt attach) cyanoacrylate (melts the paint and the wood come off) hot melt glue (impossible to get a clear finish) and other glues like epoxies that dindt work.
I hope someone could save my project. Sorry if i posted this in the wrong section and sorry for my bad english. Thank you all

Would a few dots of clear silicone work?

5 min epoxy should do the trick

Maybe, if i put silicone with a syringe, i can achieve the precision i want but, does silicone dries fast, like, in 10 seconds max?

I haven't tried these as yet but see them advertised a lot : "adhesives or glues that cure by ultraviolet light"

They are fast but don't know about clear. Lots of hits on a search.

This is the fastest glue I have used. You would spray the activator (basically acetone) on the wood.
