What you need
Italian marble 4x4 tiles
Stazon or Hybrid Palette ink pads
Brilliance ink pads
cork or sticky felt rounds
Use 4 x 4 distressed looking tumbled tiles, Italian marble. You can get them at Home Depot or Lowes, 9 in a box for $6.00.
Wipe the tile off.
Using any stamp that pleases you, stamp the image using StazOn black or Hybrid Palette Noir ink. (Vintage sets, floral, or animals look the best to me.)
Heat set with your heat gun or let ink dry completely. (Actually, I’ve learned that letting them sit over night is best, but if you can’t, heat set them really well.)
Color the image in with Brilliance ink pads, blending as you like with Q-tips and your finger. You might want to blend some StazOn, Palette, or Brilliance color around the edges to make the tile look more antiqued.
Bake tiles at 350 for 20- 30mins. This renders them totally fade proof. You do not have to seal them.
If you’re going to use them as coasters, be sure to put little sticky felt rounds or cork squares on the bottom corners,
And you really need the Stazon stamp cleaner if you want to get this ink off your stamps!!
That’s it!! Have fun.
