Red face making coasters, need help please !

I am trying to organize a tea party for my church so that we can invite neighbours and friends to come and have a good time. I am thinking of doing a coaster workshop. It's fun and easy, I was told. I need help though. From what kind of tiles to get, what kind of stamps to use, to how to do it. Anyone out there that can help please ? Also, will the tile still absorbs the water or will it get squeaky when the mug lands on it ?

Many thanks in advance

Ashley,

Search in the gallery for "coaster" and you will be amazed what you find. Also, here is a link. //www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80246&highlight=tile+coasters

My personal experience is if you put too much sealer on the tile, it will not absorb water. I've made some doozies, so you may want to plan on paper before you commit to tile.

I purchase the tiles from Home Depot. There are 9(?) in a box for 6.60. They are NOT sealed. Way easier! They come in white and cream. I stamp using stazon. I color in my images using either stazon and blender pens or daubers or I use sharpies. You can buy colored sharpies at all the office supply stores in a lot of colors. I like to use stamps like french script and then stamp something over it to color in like wonderful wings. They are beautiful. If you do it this way you do not need to seal them. They will be 100% waterproof and can absord the moisture from your drink glasses. Sealed ones will not and the need to be sanded first and resealed after you are finished designing them.
Good luck! It's a real WOW project for people!
Gina
