    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Lee Ann asked: "I want to make a message board out of ceramic tile. Can stamping Stazon™ and Sharpie® permanent markers work on glazed tile? Is there any way I can use glazed tiles?"
    A: Melsewell has a couple of great tile message boards in her gallery. She had problems with setting the ink, but several members posted some great ideas for that in this forum thread.

    Lynne has another great hint for the suspension card tutorial:"I use light fishing line for my suspension cards. You need to tie knots in both ends before taping it down. Keep up the great work."
