Tile questions

Good morning friends,
I have had a bunch of questions on the tiles and I thought I would answer some of them. I wish I had time in my day to make the beautiful tutorials that others do, but it just can't happen. However, I can tell you how to make them. :)

First, you need to purchase the tiles at your local Hardware store. I use Tumbler tiles. These are approx. 6x6 in size. Love this size. They cannot be a slick surface. These tiles once finished will be used more for decorative purposes and not a coaster. Pick your stamp set and then use CRAFT ink to stamp. Once you have stamped, use Glassy Glaze over the tile. Tap off excess. Pop in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 min and BAM they are done. Let them cool and then add some fun accessories to them for added fun. These are TERRIFIC for gifts and beautiful in your home. If you have any questions, just email me directly. :) I hope this helps!
Have a FABULOUS day!!!

Thanks so much for answering my questions. I don't need a tutorial just a couple how to's and then I am off and running. I would like to do a couple of these after my wedding in September.

Hi Kimberly, I understand busy believe me! I am wondering though this comment,"These tiles once finished will be used more for decorative purposes and not a coaster." Is it because of the craft ink? Does the Glassy Glaze not seal them? I love the tiles you made and I would love to make some as gifts but I would like to send a warning if they are not to be used as coasters.
Thanks for info in advance!
