I have a likely lame question, but am going to ask it anyway.
I need some advice for getting the glue residue OFF the marbles after I've done all this gluing. There seems to be a lot of it, and I'm not having a lot of luck with just picking it off. Maybe soap/water? I fear using the water, as I don't want it seeping into/between the two marbles causing them to split apart.
This is probably a lame answer so I guess we will go hand in hand. Haha. What about trying to use the corner of a blade to scrape it off. Obviously you don't want to push too hard so it doesn't scratch the marble, but it could work. Also, what kind of glue are you using? I use decoupage on the base of the stones and then stick them to the paper and let them dry for awhile. After that, I decoupage a piece of vellum before I glue any sort of magnet, pin, etc. on it. I think 2 part epoxy (the syringe type) works best. I tried the E6000 that everyone talks about and I must say within 5 minutes, I was starting to get sick from the smell even with all the windows open. Yuck! Sorry I rambled on, but I hope this helps you out a little bit.
Here's a photo of a barette I recently made. I forget who suggested it, but putting a piece of fabric first really does make a difference!
I've also been a magnet whore lately. These aren't even all of the ones I have made, but they are all that fit on the back of our white trash light up beer sign. Haha.
Any comments are always welcome!! Thanks
