I sell mine at $5 for a set of 4, which might seem steep at first until you calculate in my time and overhead costs. They sell pretty regularly on my site.

I am another marble magnet addict! I'm always walking around looking for more pictures. Here's some I just made: I hope you like them. They're really fun to make! I do have to becareful when the glue is drying- one day I heard a noise in the kitchen. When I went to check it out I found one of my cats (the only naughty one out of the 4) batting it around. She had picked it up in her mouth off the table and taken it to the kitchen so she could play with it. Ironically, the one she stole was of a westie!

I bought the stuff to make thse the other day. smallish glass stones about 2 cm wide

The quality is about the best i could find the only other oneshaving perlescent sheens (only like one craft store and a few discount stores in town to find them at).

When i glue the pcitures down (used nailpolish) the quality looked poor.

Has anyone done them using print outs? If so.. what kinda of paper onto I ussed high resolution paper.

Can you use photos to make these?  I was thinking of getting pictures of all of my cousins and  making a set for my grandmother (though I would probably make a picture frame instead of magnets because there are 26 of us).  Will the glue mess with the photo paper so that it doesn't end up working?

I've used both inkjet and color laser prints on plain white cardstock, and think they work fine. Using computer images helps especially if you want to resize from the 3/4 inch size to the 1 1/2 inch size (have magnets in both sizes).

ellipse and Gypsygurl,
Are you talking about the 3/4" size or the 1.5 inch size?
« Reply #289 on: November 18, 2005 07:04:06 AM »

The 3/4 ones....Im glad to hear someone sold out. I always get nervous Ill make too many and then have about a 100 magnets on my fridge (which would be cool but I think my husband wouldnt love it)
