I realize this is an old thread, but I wanted to give a word of warning about using Staz on and Sharpies....make sure when you color with the Sharpies, you don't touch the Staz on, otherwise the Sharpie will "erase" the Staz on.

Just a bit of advice from someone that found out the hard way.

One thing you might want to try...

Try coloring your tiles with alcohol inks before you stamp the stazon. I do them with the polished stone tech - and then stamp with a background stamp.
Absolutely! I love using the alcohol inks on the glazed tiles. I always say I'm going to stamp on them afterwards, but usually I like the look so much that I end up just leaving them. The larger tiles work great for trivets- just make sure you have something on the back. My aunt uses craft foam that she cuts to size, I like to use recycled cork either from wine bottles or old cork boards that my kids have destroyed.

With the alcohol inks there are lots of ways to apply your stuff- you can get the special blending solution (if the ink is applied first the blending solution take the color and spreads it to the edges of teh solution puddle. If applied before the inks it just allows the inks to run more freely) or you can use regular rubbing alcohol. I love love love the rubbing alcohol look. I spritz it out of a old hairspray bottle and the first spritz on your inked tile "bubbles" the ink- makes it look like pointalism- very cool. If you apply more, however, it will end up working like a much much cheaper alternative to the blending solution. I usually spray my finished pieces with some matte sealer (be careful what sealers you use- lots of them will change the colors of your inks) and then finished! Very addictive to play with the tiles! Once you've gotten some of the alcohol ink on the tile, stamped images do seem to come out a bit crisper to me. HTH!

I ran across some really cute tiles the other day with letters on them and magnets on the back. I was wondering if I could use my stamps to do these.

Thanks for all the idea's ladies!

Well crud... so much for cutting down on coffee - even my typed words are messed up. That should be "or" not "ot" and "Rubber" not "Runner".

Although Runner Inspirations might be good - I could use the exercise....

The matte marble tiles are my favorite and I dont even seal them, but then again I make them look vintage-y

Thank you everyone for your great responses! I will give these a try and see what I can accomplish. Alcohol inks sound wonderful! Off to do some buying. Thanks again I will let you know how things go!

I just went out and bought sharpies, bochino tiles and stazon, but am worried about using the stazon on my stamps. How do you clean your stamps after the stazon is there? Do you use or stampin scrub or would that ruin it? Does regular stampin mist do the trick?

I just use water on a dish cloth- it works fine.

Stazon isn't going to hurt your stamps.

I use the Staz-On cleaner. It works great. Haven't had much luck getting Stax-On off my stamps with other stuff. Remember it dries very quickly! You can get the cleaner at Michaels. SU! is now selling it too!!

When I am using Stazon, I stamp my stamp with Versamark first then the Stazon. I find it much easier to get the stamp relatively cleaner afterwards. I use a combination of Stazon cleaner, baby wipes and painters corner edgers.
