I am addicted to making these. However I have a problem with some. Some have darker spots after the glue dries. Is this due to too much glue? Not enough? I'm using the matte Modge Podge. Then I use the E600 for the magnet. Shoudl I use a different type of glue to glue the pictures on? Thanks!

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 am making these with photos but I didn't use the actual photo.   I made black and white copies on a regular office copier (just adjust your darkness setting) of the photos first.  I'm using old photos of my Great, great, great grandparents.  I didn't want to destroy the photos and the regular paper I figured would work better.

I never thought to make magnets with these things until I saw them on Craftster! A few years ago, my friend saw some necklaces at a local store and thought she could make them, too. She showed me how she made them when I came to visit, and I've refined the process since then. I just use modge podge (glossy) to stick them on and I just bought a whole bunch of flat marbles from a website that someone reccomended on one of these marble magnet posts:
Here are my necklaces:

Until I found the website, I couldn't find the larger marbles anywhere! Michael's has stopped carrying them and they don't have Garden Ridge here. The last ones I got at Garden Ridge were full of little air bubbles, anyway. You can't get my necklaces wet, because of the modge podge- is the E600 good for sticking the images on, or just the magnets?
Wait, here is a thread about making the necklaces- that's where I found the website:
Her way is pretty much the same way I do mine, except I use hot glue to affix the wire and I cover the back with felt.

you all do know that e6000 causes cancer, right? are you being careful?

Not all formulations cause cancer
different countries have different mixes for glue, so one should always check what is used and the user guidelines
If there is any link to cancer causing product it will be listed on your product

psssst---cosmic cranberry--if you have a dollar tree near you, they have bags of 100 for a measly $1!  Smiley
