Default Stamping on Tiles

I have been having a great time decoupaging tiles and now I want to try stamping on them. I noticed that a lot of the tile tutorials call for untreated tiles but the ones I have are glazed. Has anyone tried Staz-On inks on glazed tiles? Think it will work?

Thanks,
Julie

Yes, Stazon will stamp on a glazed tile. Keep a little rubbing alcohol handy and then if you mess up you can just wipe the tile clean and have another go!

The only proviso is that if your tile is going to get heavy use as a coaster, the stamping may scratch off. On a glazed surface the Stazon is basically just sitting on the top and doesn't make a really strong bond so it's possible to scrape it off. You might want to use a sealer over the top to protect it.

HTH!

Thanks so much, Joanne. I was thinking a sealer was probably the way to go. I'll give it a whirl.

My tile is messed up.

I stamped on a glazed tile using Staz-On ink. It sat for 8 or so hours then I sprayed Krylon Satin Finish on it from 10-12" away. It totally blurred the image. Any thoughts on how I can prevent this? Different sealer? Another step?

Thanks as always,
Julie

I stamped with Stazon on some glazed tiles. After it dried, the ink was permanent. I did not spray or add anything to it.

Really? I was under the impression that they didn't hold up well to repeated use since the ink just sits on top (i.e. non-porous material) if you didn't seal them. I tried heat-setting the ink and using an ultra-light coat of sealer for the first layer and that worked pretty well. I'm making these ones as a gift, but maybe I'll try some unsealed ones for myself.

Thanks,
Julie

Just got an e-mail from a customer that the stamped image has started to come off. Bummer! I sealed them with Krylon Satin Finish. I'm thinking of trying a different sealer, but not sure which to use.

I have used Americana brand matte finish sealer/finisher in the past and on tiles I'm making right now. I do spray on 2 lighter coats - with drying time in between. Ink has not run and it seems to hold up well. It's cheaper than Krylon so, go figure! I purchase mine at Michael's, but I would think other places would sell that brand, too. Good luck!

Thanks, Loretia! I made a new a batch with Krylon Make It Last sealer. Same as you - started with a couple of very light coats and then added a couple more on top just to be sure. They seem to be holding up fine.

When I'm finished with this can I'll check out the Americana brand. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby for $5.99 (then used a 40% off coupon, of course!).

There is a ceramic coating you can use from Pebeo. Its made for sealing painted ceramic. After its cured (baked in the oven) its oven & dishwasher safe. I've been using it on ceramic mugs that I stamp on.

Since this is a thread about tile coasters, I though I would chime in with a comment. Last year I made quite a few sets that I stamped, and I was pretty pleased with them overall.

This year I decided to make them with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge. They are turning out great, and I think they are much, much easier than the ones I stamped. I'm making about 20 sets of 4 for Christmas gifts, and it's going really quickly. I'll post some pics when I get done.

If you are interested, here is a link to the tutorial I used:

I made some with scrapbook paper a couple years ago for the craft fairs I was doing. They turned out great. I also made some for my Mom and she is still using them. I would tell people to not submerge them in water but to just use a wet cloth to clean them. I used outdoor formula mod podge on mine since its water resistant.

I used to paint on glass bottles, which is also a non porous surfaces. I used to finished them with glossy brush on sealer. I used 2 coats, letting the first dry begore adding the second. Years later, I still have 1 of those bottles with and it looks as good as the day that I painted it. But I am very careful as to how I wash it.

Forgot to mention above that I also baked for 30 minutes at 325 degrees after inking with StazOn - just to be on the ultra-sure side.

Bugga, I've made some of the paper coasters too. They are a breeze to make, aren't they? Love those too.

Cheers,
Julie

I made last month over 200 coasters for a silent auction fundrasier coming up in Feb. The possibilities are limitless. That said, I really like the way the coasters turned out using the SU stamp sets: Field Flowers, Medallion, & Serene Sunflowers. A Paper Studio Clear Stamp set called "Flourishes" made a really neat pattern. Gina K's Take Flight butterfly set turns out neat. It allows you to add color with a sponge dauber. I used Sutter Stamps #I-1349 which is a deer in the woods to make a neat monochromatic masculine slant coaster.
Have fun and stamp what you love!
