I use epoxy for a lot of different things. I've fixed our flip-top trash can as well as our skidsteer with it. Whenever I have extra epoxy after a project I make a square or sphere or whatever shape out of it. Now I'm making those shapes into fridge magnets. Amazing, I know.
Step 1: Create the Shape
For this sphere I had magents close by so I emeded the magnet while the epoxy was still soft. I get most of my magnets from my boys kids meal toys. This magnet worked allright but when I was finlizing the shape the magnet sunk into the sphere. I shaved the epoxy to maintain the strength of the magnet.
Step 2: Cube Magnet
This is a cube that I made some time ago. My son loves when I pull it out of his ear. To make this into a magnet I drilled a shallow hole with a forsner bit. I secured the small magent with some superglue.
Both of these magnets are small and probably present a choking hazard. When I make more in the future I'll try to incorporate some washers to increase the size and maybe make them "artisitc". Thanks
