Has anyone else experienced their marble magnet images turning yellow a while after being made and up on the fridge?
I used Silicon sealear glue and thought it was great at first....
anyone have a similar event and do you have any sure-fire glue brands that wont yellow?
Thanks  Wink

I used a liquid laminate that was in the glue isle of the craft store to glue the paper cutout to the marble.  Then Tacky glue to glue the magnet on.  I have had pretty good luck with this.

I made a whole bunch about a year and a half ago and they haven't yellowed or come apart or anything - they are just fine! I used plain old Elmer's glue and also tacky glue, - for both the paper part and the magnet part.
I originally bought the marbles at Michael's Craft Supply, but for the last year I have't been able to find any more there (I guess everyone else is also addicted to this craft!). I have been looking everywhere for them for months.  I went to Walmart yesterday and found the last two mesh bags of clear flat marbles and came home and stayed up 'til midnight making 75 new magnets. Must..make..more..magnets...... it is SO fun!

thanks guys!    Wink
Anyone use E6000 glue?? or Gorilla glue....Id like to know if anyone has used either of these and if they are good?

Gorilla glue fashions itself as the "stongest glue on earth"......like to know what cha think?
Maybe it would be good to use for microbead work...   ~M

I have not used either of those glues...I think maybe they are pricey?  I have done microbead work using a thin layer of tacky glue.  Seemed to work fine cause it dries clear.  It's not waterproof though if that matters to you.

I'm using E6000 for my magnets and for other various and sundry beading and crafting  uses.  I've heard some people complain that it's expensive, but I payed less then $5 for a big tube and have been happy with the results and its versatility.

Yikes!  Undecided  Those marbles magnets were selling like hot cakes at Christmas time! And I made all of them with that silicon glue. It's nasty stuff, too. I would have much preferred to work with Tacky Glue or Weldbond but I was worried about white glues not being strong enough or that they might go yellow. Has anybody else had the yellowing thing going on?  Huh

OK.....So I looked into this a little.....

My mom works in a jewelry store and she asked the jeweler there about silicon sealer and E6000 glues.......He said that any soft epoxy will yellow after time!   Ahhh!

Just thought Id give you all a heads up!  I made probably 200 or so marble mag's for friends and they are all starting to show signs of the dreaded yellow! Undecided
(Especially the ones in a direct path of sunlight! so be careful of this)  Hope this is helpful!   ~M

Thanks for the heads up, Laamissa! So, just to clarify, should we be using a white glue like Weldbond or Tacky Glue to stave off the dreaded yellowing?  Huh

Hello Indie Anna!  Yeah....it looks like that would be our best bet....Ive never tried it before So I just hope that the "white" glues (that dry clear) are strong enough to hold the weight of the marble!     ~M
