Smile question on tile coaster!

I am making my first coater Tile tomorrow. Can anyone give me the best directions for making them. Is there a certain spray sealer that works best? What is your experiences? Thanks in advance. Everyone is always so helpful!

I made them 1 time and all we did was use Staz on ink to stamp and colored with Sharpies and they came out really good. With this method there is no need for sealer or baking and all that stuff, it's too hot to bake em in the oven anyway! I think that using a sealer will make then non-absorbent which goes against the whole point if coasters, right?
I have been using the coasters and they absorb the sweat from my glasses and they havent smeared a bit, been using them for more than a month. They are in my gallery if you'd like to check them out.

I used two methods, neither of which required a sealer. I stamped with stazon first. One one tile I colored in the image with EK Success brand memory pencils - these are permanent colored pencils for scrapbooking and worked great. On the other tile I colored in the image with colorbox Fluid Chalk Inks using a blender pen - these need to be heat set to be permanent. Both worked great. HTH!

I used a method that I saw on SCS - stamp in Stazon, color with WWC and then use this epoxy pour on... it makes them shine like they are coated in glass and it allows you to have the versitity of the WWC...

Here is a link to the coasters that I got the idea from

I stamp mine in StazOn, color with chalks, and then coat with two quick coats of clear Krylon. It's enough of a finish to set the chalks, but not so much that the water beads up on them.
