    Q: Ches asked: "Can you make photo tiles with ink jet printouts?"
    A: When printing with an inkjet printer, be sure you give extra time for the ink to dry completely before you put it on the tile and apply Mod Podge to it. If the picture is not completely dry, it will smudge when you Mod Podge it.
