can someone please recommend a glue to use on this? like i said before in another topic people were talking abotu their marbles yellowing from using e6000 glue. However i want to make the marbles and stick the wire on, but dont want yellow marbles after awhile.

I've had my magnets (&etc) for years, with no yellowing, and I only work with E600.  The yellowing could result from a lot of factors that simply changing glue might not address: off the top of my head, it could have to do with the type of paper used for the picture, the ink used to print said picture, the local climate both during and after this particular creative process, exposure to sunlight during and after this particular creative process... well, you get the idea.

If you're really that worried, your best bet would be personal experimentation.  Besides, if it does yellow after a year, you can just make a new one.  I've had jeans that couldn't last that long.

Beautiful work, sparklytoothpaste.  Welcome to Craftster.

made a new one! this is from a map of fiji i picked up from the local newsagents! theres a bracelet to go with it too - sorry the photos dont do the colours justice at all - hope you like it Smiley







 

i have made a few more too - will post them when i get the pics.

i'm wanting to make them and have a go selling them properly when i get back home - i know we're not to advertise here i'm just wanting your estimates on what you think i could charge? i hate having to put a value on my own work!

Just want to add for anyone having trouble finding good jumbo-size glass beads, I ordered from this site - they are super cheap. looks like they are sold out of the medium size ones.

thankyou Smiley

i havent been able to find any blanks anywhere. we dont have a michaels in australia - but by the sound of what all you guys are buying there i so want one!!!

so out of desperation i used a pair of needle-nosed pliers and a roll of wire to make everything that isnt a glass bead! so the chain, the links, the backing of the marbles and the clasp is just wire from a roll that i have bent with the pliers - it was soooo easy Smiley and all out of my own little head - so it cant be too hard!

 i dont know if you can see the photo i first put up in the post but it shows a bit of an amateurish attempt at a tutorial of how to make a wire and paper backing to a glass bead. its surprisingly durable! i've been wearing the fiji map necklace non stop and it's not showing any signs of wear and tear!! (although i really need to seal the back with some sort of varnish or something cause the paper tends to soak up a touch of moisture from this tropical weather)

let me know if anyone wants me to post a tute on how to make the chain, links and clasps all out of wire.
i's be happy to share!

love your marble magnets spoiled blonde Smiley very cute!

here are a couple more i made last night - let me know what you guys think i could charge for them? i'm wanting to sell them in a few funkly little shops back home but i can never put a price on my own stuff Sad what do you all think?

(i'm tough, i can take it!)

this one was from a book on elections that i picked up for 50c, grouchy old men...





this one is from an atlas from the 70's it shows the poulation distribution in papua new gineau. the size of the orange dots matched up with a little chart at the bottom of the map. the colours didnt come up very well but theyre orangy yellow, purple and lilac. very retro!
