Default ink for tile coasters

Is there any possibility of using the regular ink to make the sets of tile coasters. I only have Stazon black and no colors. I hate to invest the $ for more ink. I do have the matte finish spray etc. I didn't know if anyone had tried baking them using the classic inks & then spraying with the sealer a couple of times. Thanks for your help girls!!

I've never tried using regular ink on tile coasters. But you can stamp an outlined image with Stazon Black and color them in with Sharpies. Those will be cheaper than investing in more colors of Stazon! Have fun!

Ditto what Diane said. You don't want to use regular ink, because ANY moisture will make it run/rub off. That includes your sealant. I say go for the Sharpies or Bics, and then just skip the sealant, so they remain absorbant. Baking them in the oven will be sufficient to set the ink, and the colors won't run.

I have not used regular classic ink for coloring coasters but I used Colorbox chalk on these coasters and I have used them in my family room for almost a year. They still look like they did the day I made them. I did not seal them but baked them. I didn't want to seal them because I wanted them to absorb the condensation.

How did you get your colors so clear?? I've tried chalking my images on tiles and they always seem "faded"...

Thanks for the great tips! I never thought about either sharpies or colorbox chalk, I have a ton of both! I will probably have to change the stamp I thought I would use but that's not a big deal. BWstamper, your example is great!! Loved it!

I have used black staz on, and then color in with prisma markers, sharpies, bic markers etc. Or craft inks, and then bake it for 30min on 350 (I think)

When I made a set of coasters and colored them on with chalk and the "set" it with spray - I found that the coasters no longer were "thirsty" coasters. When I used them in the summer, the tile didn't absorb the condensation from the glass and it kind of puddled. the other sets that I have made with just stayzon - and no setting spray- did have the "thirsty stone" aspect and I'm much happier with them.

You can use - Staz-on or chalk INK to stamp - You can also use permanent markers like Sharpies or bics to color in. I have also used Stazon to stamp the outline and then used an old blender pen or a pointed Q-tip to color in using chalk INK

I have made many a tumbled tile - you also want to make sure you are getting the RIGHT tumbled tile - Bottochino - other ones can have a coating or a sheen to them which can allow the ink to not adhere correctly.

I still don't understand how the chalk stays on the tile...do you put the chalk on with blender pens then bake them or do you just dust the chalk on and then seal it or just back it?

I have made a lot of tile sets for gifts and for my own use. I have used Stazon black, colored in with watercolor pencils with blender pens. I have used spray sealant. I have had mine for about 2 years and they still look perfect.

I don't know if it's the best way or not - but I put on chalk using a blender pen - and because the texture of the coaster is pretty rough it "ate" up my blender pen a bit - so use an old one - I have not sealed and have had no problems. Didn't put them in the oven, either.
