Hi everyone!

I'm making marble glass rings. I glue the paper to the glass marble, then the marble to the ring blank. Looked like it worked, all was well until i wore it while washing my hands. The water seeped in, moistened the paper and the marble came off the ring blank. I would think since the glue is essentially on both sides of the paper at that point it would be SUPER sealed, apparently I am wrong :-( I've been using the E6000. Nice and clear and sturdy.

Help! :-)

I would probably try a 2 part resin.  But then you would need to seal the picture to prevent the resin from seeping into the paper fibers, which turns the paper translucent (think of like when paper gets oil on it).  Simply sealing it in clear tape will do.  I also had recent success with clear gel medium as a glue and seal as well, for paper goods under resin.

Your paper is getting 'wet out' from being exposed to water. You'll need to seal it to keep that from happening. Coat the paper with mod podge & then use resin to seal it.

Clear silicone caulk comes in a squeeze-size tube, or a caulk-gun size tube (I recommend the smaller one, caulk guns are a nuisance with crafts).  It's caulk, made to seal water out, but also works as a great glue.  Smear a bit on the glass, add paper, let dry, then smear all over the exposed paper.  Add another blob to attach to ring blank.  I always get the paintable version, so if I ever need to paint it, I can.

I'm a little worried about the silicone holding in this application, though.  Since silicone makes a non-stick surface, so E-6000 probably won't stick to the silicone.  So test before making a bunch.
