And speaking of silicon glue, has anybody else seen this thread about the problem with the silicon glue yellowing after about one year?

YES! I made 3 sets of magnets...maybe 3 years ago...and within a year they all turned bright yellow. Two sets were gifts. It even left yellow rings on the refrigerator.  Shocked

I wasn't sure if it was the E6000 or what...wondered if the E6000 could have been reacting with the ink from the photo inkjet...and I haven't been willing to make more since then.

Edited to add: Actually, I know it was the E6000, because I've looked at glass beads that I've glued and they have yellowed where the glue was.

I was going to give a bracelet of these as a gift for christmas but now I'm afraid maybe I should hold off. I've been just using gem glue from the picture to marble and then the E6000 from the back of the picture to the bracelet. Did you have vellum between the image and your magnet and it still yellowed? Or any recommendation you know of for an alternative glue? Thanks!

swaggerboom, no, I did not have any vellum. Near as I can recall, it was just layered as:

Glass marble
White glue
Photo printed on heavyweight matte photo paper
Maybe black cardstock with light adhesive
Heavy-duty magnet

If I were to try it again, maybe I'd try Weldbond.

Here's one of the pile I made:

Flies. Mmmmm.
This is on a big marble, which I find so fun to work with.

Anything I can reach I do myself.
