Flat marble magnets are all the rage, but many are made using Mod Podge and paper. This time we are going to paint on the faces. We won’t be painting the front, which will receive the most abuse from being moved around the fridge. Instead we’ll paint on the back and preserve those cute faces to be used over and over again!
To make these snowman magnets you will need the following supplies:
- Clear flat marbles
- 1/2″ round magnets
- Acrylic craft paint: white, black, and orange
- Matte varnish, Mod Podge or other clear sealer or finish
- E6000 Clear Multi-Purpose Adhesive Glue
Turn the magnets over so that the flat side is facing up. Use a toothpick to add the orange noses first.
Use a toothpick to dot on black eyes and mouths.
Let them dry completely, two hours should be safe.
Add a layer of white paint over the faces and let dry.
When that layer has dried, add a second layer of white paint and let dry. I placed mine in an empty paint palette to keep them all together.
When that paint has dried, add a layer of clear varnish. After that has dried, used E6000 to glue the magnets on.
