These really were pretty easy, once I read all of the pitfalls on SCS!! I washed the tumbled marble tiles (from HD) and let dry overnight. I did the stamp with Stazon (did not bake) and let dry. Then the tile was colored with the SU pastels and a Q-tip (okay, maybe 10 Q-tips!). I masked the edges with masking tape before sealing (Patricia Nimrock from WM) so they would adsorb water at least on the outer edges. As someone here pointed out, bleeding CAN occur, and it was remedied by spraying the first sealant coat a good 12" or more away from tile. I did 4 total layers of sealer with 15 min. dry times.
Kind of takes a while, but nice end result- good gift item- a set tied up with hemp twine??

I was looking to be inspired to stamp on tiles, and you have done that. I'm needing ideas for my monthly workshop for March - my 22 stamping ladies wanted to do tiles, - I think a lot of them will be inspired by your idea. Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous tiles! You did a wonderful job, and I really appreciate your summary of how it worked best for you. I held onto this set because it was so beautiful, and now I have a great project to do using it. TFS!!!!!!!
