Default stampin on glossy tiles

I am making items for a church craft fair where the money earned goes to missions. Someone has gifted us glossy tiles. In the past I have stamped on matted tiles with stazon that worked great. So easy and they sold great!! Well, I need help on how to stamp on these glossy tiles to make coasters. Any suggestions on how to get the stazon ink to stay on the tiles. Thanks for your
help.

I used glossy tiles for a few coasters, and I used Stazon ink with no problem. After it dried, it was there to stay.

I had the most problem just with the stamping - those tiles are so slick that my stamp slipped a little and blurred, no matter how careful I tried to be. I didn't make many for that reason.

I tried to use stamps that were simple and didn't have much detail because of the smudging factor.

Here is a tip, if you make a mistake, you can use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to wipe it off and start over, which helps. I did that a bunch of times.

Here is a link to one that I did. I used a black sharpie to doodle around the edges which worked well, I think.

I took clear embossing powder and lightly sprinkled over the stamping before baking, then made sure to bake until just melted. Too long will discolor the stamping.

Default stamping on glossy tiles

Why not try decoupaging on them? You could stamp onto tissue paper and then glue the design onto the tiles with Mod Podge.

I use a stamp-a-ma-jig so the stamp can't move on the tile.

Here is a good tutorial for a variation on this. You use pretty patterned scrapbook paper and cut squares for the tiles. I made many sets like this last Christmas for gifts and they were well received. They show felt dots on the bottom, but I used squares of fun foam cut to cover the bottom in coordinating colors, and they turned out really great. No baking needed, but after you are finished with them, you need to apply a coat of clear waterproof spray sealant, because the Mod Podge is not really waterproof.

What an adorable tile. You must be a master as I could never get the Staz-on to be permanent no matter what, even though it is designed for non-porous surfaces.
