1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Glass Marble Magnets on: April 20, 2005 10:09:58 AM

I did have a few questions though. I used E6000 glue to paste the pictures as well. Someone suggested clear nailpolish for the pics but when i tried that, the nailpolish dried so quickly that it did not help to stick the pic. so I decided to use e6000 for pics as well as the magnets
However, this glue is not very easy to work with in that, it's not snooth and spreadable. Anyone can suggest a more spredable glue for the pics. E 6000 was fine for the magnets..dries very fast.

i use e6000 every time. one very easy way to do this is to NOT cut your pictures out first. instead, just print them out into about 3 inch squares, then dab the glue directly from the tube onto the marble, and then press onto the picture, allowing the glue to spread out and cover the entire picture. when it is completely dry (about 1 hour give or take) use a small scissors to cut the marble off the paper--just cut around the edge of the marble as close as you can. then glue the magnet to the back and voila! you have a perfect magnet every time. (i use curved cuticle scissors to cut the marble off the paper--easy to move around the little marble!)

ordinary thumb tacks from an office supply store are cheap and work well. also magnets are much cheaper at the hardware store than they are at the craft store.

oh i know! I did this when i was a Girl Scout camp P.A. and recently for my Daisy troop. I used salt (uber cheap, .30 a carton) and chalk pastels, regular chalk is ok but not as vibrant. Anyways, I did this all in advance. I took a pie pan that had a upraised brand name on the bottom and put salt in it. than I rubbed the chalk across the writing and with a little stir, viola! Colored sand. we layered the "sand" into clean used coke bottles and reattached the caps, very cute. I hope this helps
Thanks so much--great idea! GS's are always looking to save money! Thanks again!

I'm psyched cuz i just went over to the dollar tree on my lunch break and found the big 1 1/2" marbles for about 25/$1!!!! i can't wait to go home and make big magnets!

page pebbles are nice because they're uniform but they are terribly expensive compared to the marbles. I just found the big 1 1/2" size marbles at the dollar store about 1/2 hour ago! it looks like about 25 or so in the bag. i am so psyched to go home and put them to use this weekend!!! (i'm working now Sad )

but anyway i found them at Dollar tree if you have those around you. also get my regular marbles at michaels for about 100/$2.29

I'm not quite sure what you mean--are you asking what you could use as  a mold to get those dimensions?
