I hope I'm not pushing the stamping technique envelope with this ?, but here goes.....
I want to make some coasters using tumbled tiles for a fundraiser. I have made many using Staz-On ink. However, for this fund raiser, the image I am using really needs all over coverage of color. Does anyone have any suggestions for "painting" the image?
Thanks, Bugga for sharing the tutorial using designer paper. I may try that someday. I am still trying to figure out how to "paint" solid images, which is actually the charity's logo, on the tumbled tile.
Oh you are wanting to be able to paint it by hand? What about making a stencil (print it out heap cardstock and cut it out or use an electronic cutter if you have access to one) and then sponge in ink or color with permanent markers.
I haven't tried this but it seems like it might work for an image you don't have a stamp for.
Thank you for the good ideas! I rolled the dice and tried a couple of things. I went ahead and purchased the tumbled tiles. One design, which was not totally colored in, I drew freehand with Sharpies. The other design, which was all colored in, I purchased an acrylic craft paint and used it. I sealed both with matte waterproof sealer. They really turned out quite well! Hopefully, they will sell and earn some money for the Children's Protection Network!
Thank you again, stampers!
Hi Bugga! Thanks for the link! The coasters look great. I think I will try some with the dp as well. I have done some in the past with stazon then colored in my image. Never thought about using dp! Can't wait to try it! Thanks again!
