Default Using tiles and game pieces

I just found about 200 tiles from games--shiny white dominoes. I tried to stamp some small stamps on them. Used StazOn and pigment ink. Came back 1 hour later and they still smeared. Do I need to Gesso them first? Do I need to heat set them? If I use chalks or pens do I need to seal them?
Help!!!! Would also like to make some coasters for Christmas. Use the same techniques? Would rough tiles be better?
Thanks for any help?

This is probably old news to you, but you can get a boc of those 3 or 4 inch tiles in the ceramic tile section at home depot. These work great

Thank you for your answer. I already have the tiles. I just need to know how to make the ink be permanent on the face of the tile. I know it would work on the rough larger tiles, but, the small game pieces are kind of plastic
and slippery. I want to make small pins for the holidays. I found a lot of them at the Gallery Site and under anything but a card. Then go to tiles or game pieces. I just had all the ink smear.

Default stamping dominoes

I have often stamped dominoes with Staz-on with great results and no sealing required. I'm surprised that it would smear after drying for that long. Pigment inks will not dry and you will either have to seal them or possibly emboss them (I have not tried this so I can't guarantee results).

I have done coloring with stampin' up! markers, but these also reqire sealing because the color will rub right off. If you want to avoid sealing, use Staz-on to stamp and permanent (Sharpie) markers to color. This can still be scratched off, but it takes some work and will stand up to normal use.

As for the tiles, I think using the tumbled tiles is probably easier. If you use glazed tiles you will have to deal with smearing problems when stamping and you will probably have to seal them if they will be used as coasters or trivets.

HTH!
