Default Heat setting coasters?? And only StazOn or can I use chalk?

Hello, I could use some advice! I am having a coaster workshop next month. I've made these a few times on my own, and have always used StazOn then heat set them, either in the oven or with the heat tool. A friend of mine just told me she neither heat sets them or seals them and they don't smear at all. Anyone else fall into this category?? I find it hard to believe (probably just because I was taught an opposite way!) Also, I see some you of have colored yours in with pastels or something else. What are you using to color them in, and can they be heat set, or do they have to be sealed? I didn't know how permanent colored in ones would be, and if they are functional or more for decoration. thanks so much for any advice!

You could run the cork through a Xyron machine. The cork will stay on the paper until they are ready to apply it.

That E6000 glue works too - but not sure how you would give everyone some to take with them.

We're using felt feet - the little dots that have adhesive on the back. They work great!

Good luck at your workshop!

I've used the 'felt feet', they're great. But, if you're set on the cork, upsell the Crystal Effects....works great for keeping the cork on the back! HTH

Thanks for the advice, that Xyron sounds like a cool idea, maybe I'll have to get one.

I'm wondering about the felt feet, does the moisture from the tile soak through the coaster, or does it not make it all the way through? I didn't know if the felt feet would provide enough protection from moisture.

thanks, I appreciate your thoughts! I'm going to do some examples on my own, so maybe i'll try the Crystal Effects. I'm liking the felt feet too.

I have always used felt feet (the peel and stick kind) and that has always worked just fine--no, the moisture does not go all the way through.

I stamped mine with a Stazon and then chalked in the color with a blending pen and then strayed them with "Krylon" Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating and let it dry works wonderfully. You can buy felt to use for the bottoms.
