Default Calling all tile experts

I'm working on some tiles. Playing around with chalk, pencils, classic ink and markers. The tile I like best I used pencils to color the image. I read somewhere that you could brush Crystal effects on the colored image to seal it. I went ahead and did it that way. I do like how the colors blended together on my dragonfly. Is this an OK technique??? I want to make sure I give my customers correct info. Does anyone else do it this way??

Thanks, any help, tips or info is welcomed.


I did also use clear spray sealer on the ones I did with chalk and marker.
The marker one I can still wipe off the color but I only sprayed one time.

When I made tiles at a SU Party, my demo used Clear Spray Paint to seal them. I have never done it with the CE, I'm curious.

Do they have to be bakes in the oven or can you heat set with a heat gun? I'm not sure the difference between tiles. The tiles I bought yesterday at HD are cheaper...there were other ones that were very pricey. So I thought these would be good to expieriment with. The have a smoother finish on the front, not shiney glossy though. Just to be safe I sanded one a bit and it took Stazon really well.

If I clear coat it, does it really need baking?

Are you using the tumbled marble tiles or the ceramic tiles. That makes a difference.


With the tumbled marble, I use a clear coat spray to cover them (I use chalks to color in, never thought of using pencils).

For the ceramic tiles, I stamped with the craft pads and then covered the craft ink with UTEE, baked in an oven (325 for a few minutes - until the utee melts). Then let the tiles cool (themsget hot! )....and I use a versamark pad (old one b/c it gets ugly looking quick) to cover the entire tile, more utee, more baking, until there is a clear smooth coat across the entire tile. The THANG is, these tiles tend to crack within a short while, so I would rather use the tumbled marble in the future. I have a case of ceramic tiles sitting in my office

You can also use the chalks to add a background color. Then stamp image over the chalked background. Just make sure you seal it with an acrylic sealer. but it does look very nice. If I can figure out how to upload a pic of the one we did at my open house i will.

Also for anyone who doesn't know. E-6000 glue seems to work best at adhering the magnets on the backs of tiles and stones. I didn't realize this until my son used it by mistake.

have a great day
