Question Help! Another Coaster Question

Yes, I realize these questions have been asked a zillion times before, but I don't have time to go through all the threads, and the ones I was looking at confused me more. I posted on the techniques forum, but I'm not getting any feedback. I want to make these as gifts, so here's all I need to know...can someone please help me out?

I have the tumbled tiles (Lowe's) and want to do a simple medallion on them.

I have Staz on ink.

Do I need to bake? If so how long and what temp?

And do I need to seal? Will the ink run if I don't?

Do I need to do both?

Straight up Staz on is all I am doing in this case...no other coloring.

THANK YOU in advance!!

I've used the tumbled tiles from Lowe's with Stazon. I baked 15 minutes at 325. I didn't seal because I wanted the moisture to not pool on the coaster when it was used. I used my set all summer and didn't have a problem with ink running.

That's just my experience, I hope it helps!

Because you are using stazon...you should not need to bake or seal...you can if you like but you do not have to.

If you seal you do take a chance of having the ink run depending on the sealant you use...sorry I dont have a list of what works best for stazon.

I do noot seal any of my coasters....

If I were doing your project...I would bake just to be on the safe side and call it good.

Temps and times same as posted above.

I recently saw a video by Gina K with this technique: http://stamptv.ning.com/video/tile-coasters - no baking or sealing required! HTH

I have made so many of these, and so far (at least 3 years) they are holding up really well. I only use Staz on (coloring with sharpies if I need to). I wash my tiles first to get all the dust off. Then I bake em (275 for about 20 minutes) just to make they are really dry. Since the oven is already on - I stick them back in for 15 minutes or so.

Done!
