It's interesting to see tiles made with this set. Did you bake your tiles?
Did you apply any coating after the Stayz On? Did you put anything on the back of your tiles, such as felt or cork to keep from scratching furniture?
I just priced tiles in our local Home Depot today, and am interested in making a set, too.
Thanks for sharing. I really like this set in this colour.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I didn't seal the tiles or bake them. I made a 'test' tile and used it under very humid conditions. The tile doesn't soak up all the moisture from the glass, but the colors don't run, fade, etc., either. I haven't put anything on the bottoms, yet. I plan to. But the one I've been using hasn't scratched my computer desk. It's not real wood, either. Anyway . . . thanks again for the comments and questions. :)
