    marble magnets *glue* problem

    I've read up on marble magnets information from cabochon to square clear tiles, but all posts seem to have the same problem---the silicone-based glues (like E6000) they highly recommend turn yellow over time.

    I don't know if it's the glue or exposure to sunlight that's turning other people's marble magnets yellow or not, but I was wondering what the solution to this is?

    One person said acrylic seal---what brand or form, it didn't say. I have workable fixatif & super surface sealer, but I don't know if either of them will work. :( Plus, it's just an extra step in the process~

    So I searched for archival glass glue & came up with YES! glue
    http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?C...6&rId=GOBASECI Has anyone used it before? It seems ideal! Dries clear, can be used with glass & paper [& magnets, I wonder?]...

    Any help would be highly appreciated! I really want to give some marble magnets as gifts or possibly swap them, but I don't want them to crumble or fade in a year or two. :/

    Thank you so much!!! :D

    the ones I made (about 2 years ago) never yellowed...
    I used e6000 on them.

    I have also made some using "marbles" with very flat bottoms and used clear nail polis to attach them and they have also not turned yellow (I used hot glue to attach the magnet).

    The yellowing could be from the magnet... try coating the magnet with clear nail polish or other color free enamel, letting it dry and then gluing with the e6000..?
