Instead of tile have you used flat cork to make coasters? Use acrylic paints not alcohol inks to decorate or pour a pattern.
I just discovered you and your coasters are very cool!
Very disappointed you didn’t include the resining.
Hi Shari ~ What a great tutorial. I am assuming you don't wash the tiles before you put the epoxy/resin on? Do you have a problem with the silicone separating the epoxy?
What kind of torch do you use?
Beautiful colours in the blue my fave colour…..how do you mix the resin and can you purchase at hardware store….thanks Donna Remeika
where do you get the cork from ?
Do you ever you put resin in with your paints so you don't have to seal it
Thank you for the tile video. How do you seal the coasters? I have tried a spray but when they dry and I put a hot cup on the tile it sticks. How do you seal your tiles?
Great tutorial, what resin did you use to seal the tiles and does the resin do well with hot drinks; is there any marks left on the tile
Beautiful creations!!! I can't wait to get started on my own. A few quick questions before I set off on my own.1. After four or so days when the paint has dried on the tiles, will there be a drip effect on the edges or does the smoothing you do throughout the process help with that issue?2. After your paint has dried and you now pour the resin, how long do you wait for the resin to dry?3. Would using Gesso prior to pouring help in any way?
I really love the boldness of the second set of coasters! Someone asked about where to find the tiles. I've gotten them at Lowes in the clearance section at times. I buy them without knowing exactly when I'll use them if they are a good deal lol.
Hi Shari, I'm a little late to the party here, but I hope you are still answering questions. Can these be sealed with MinWax instead of resin? I haven't tried to do anything with resin, and although it's very attractive, I'm afraid it will be just one more thing for me to mess up. 🙂
Can I use Elmers Glue-All instead of the glue that you used?
Shari, do you use a spray resin, or pour it like the paint?
This is so amazing and you are a terrific teacher. I am teaching paint pouring to a class of Sr. Citizens next month and I will use your instruction, for sure!
How do you clean the silicone off the tiles without taking the paint off?
Once the coating of resin is dry, are they suitable to use in a bath or shower enclosure? Or a backsplash?
How do you keep the paint from separating from the tile once it's dry since the paint doesn't absorb into the surface. Do you prep the tile in anyway before or does putting resin on afterward make it permanent? I have been wanting to make some of these to sell but I don't want to sell something that wont last and I have heard some people say the paint comes off when they try to clean the tile after it dries.
Where do you get your tiles?
Hi Shari, I did my first pour last night. So much fun. How long does it take the tiles to dry?
Hi Shari, so inspiring. I'm going to home depot tomorrow. What epoxy resin do you use?
Hi Shari! When I click on the link to supplies used it takes me to a page that says, “There’s nothing here!”
There you go, doing your magic again! I just dragged tiles out if my storage shed to create alcohol ink coaster, now I am going to pour paint on them. I just did a class with 9-14 year olds with pour paint, they had so much fun!
Thanks so much, Shari, for the very informative lesson. That looks very fun and I love the idea of doing coasters. I always learn something when I watch your videos – always! Unfortunately, I live very near a Home Depot, so I can tell I'll be heading over there this weekend for a box of tiles. That means that this weekend, I may have to work on coasters instead of cleaning my office. Oh, the sacrifices we make!
