Creating a Photo Magnet
Taking a photo with no glare was harder than making the magnet
Looking for a simple stocking stuffer gift that will add a very personal touch to someone’s kitchen?
These Clear Glass Cabochons come in 20mm and 30mm sizes. Select a photo of a friend, family member, pet or your favorite nature shot. Resize it using your photo app. Print on photo paper. Using the desired size of cabochon for a template, trace around the photo. Cut along your tracing line. Protect your work surface with a piece of wax paper and lay the photo circle face up. Squeeze a narrow bead of Insta–Cure Glue around the edge of the photo. Very gently center the cabochon over the photo. Don’t apply any pressure since the photo, glue and cabochon all have a tendency to slide.You can see this happened in the photo of my niece. Allow to dry an hour or so. Turn the cabochon upside down. Spread a thin coat of glue on one side of the magnet. Gently position the glue side of magnet on the back of your photo cabochon and press down just a wee bit. Allow to dry for 2 hours. That’s it.
I’ve also seen designs painted on the flat side of the cabochon using nail polish. This would be a great way to make very customized pieces for inlay work on gourds.
We offer the plain cabochons three ways: package of 2 – 20mm, package of 2 - 30 mm, package of one each of the 20mm & 30mm. We’ve put together a refrigerator magnet kit containing: 2 – 20mm cabochons, 2 – 30mm cabochons, 4 magnets and a bottle of Insta-Cure Glue.
