How to make decorative magnets with Friendly Plastic
Friendly Plastic - light color
Dye ink pad - color of choice and also black
Rubber Stamp with pattern/image of choice
Ink Jet transparency
Double Stick tape
Print or stamp images onto transparency and allow to dry
Create the background by inking the surface of the Friendly Plastic, then stamping to remove some of the ink and reveal a pattern. Allow to dry.
Apply double stick tape to the back of the glass marble, remove backing and position over transparency image. Burnish until nice and smooth. Apply another layer of tape to the back of image.
Remove tape backing and position over Friendly Plastic - burnish
Turn marble to back side and slightly heat. Use fingers to soften edges. Allow to cool
As an idea, attach a bail to top of marble and attach to chain for a simple pendant.
