    Lowe's sells the 4"x4" ceramic tiles for 15 cents each. A box of 100 for $15. I bought a box of them last week and am using them to transfer my photographs. Also, instead of using cork, I'm using little clear rubbery pads for feet on each corner, because if they're used as coasters I want it completely washable and cork can get waterlogged. : ) I got those from Walmart for a couple of dollars for a pack of 48 I think.

    What would you have to do to one of these tiles to make it waterproof enough to install in a bathroom near the shower, but not directly in it? What's the best way to seal it for that purpose? Would clear acrylic spray be good enough?

    I get my photos printed at the public library! I'm not sure if it's cheaper than staples or OfficeMax, but it's easier for me to get to the library and do it myself.

    Thanks for your very clear instructions to transferring photos and paper to tiles. I did this couple years ago, but I didnโ€™t know how to transfer so I mod podged the photo to the tile. Today I learned the correct way to do this. I have a family photo that I plan to transfer to wood. Can I use the method you just showed to transfer to wood? I enjoy videos without the music sometimes, plus your voice is so soothing.

    Thank you so much for your video! I have attempted this many times now with the same results. I have the mod podge matte that Iโ€™m using to transfer the photo. I have left the photo copies overnight and when I get it wet to peel the paper I end up with white residue and flakes. If I wet it more and keep rubbing it pulls the transfer photo off… any suggestions?

    I have always thought this would be a great way to keep a child's handprints or drawings or whatever over a period of time and make a place to add or hang the tiles to a wall…wouldn't want them permanently attached and then move!

    Hello Janie, I really enjoyed watching this video. I just wanted to make you aware that floor tile cost more than wall tile. I also make coasters and I only pay 8 cents each for wall tiles at Home Depot. A box of 112 cost only $8.00. I gasped when you said $.98 cents Just an F.Y.I. for anyone who's watching.

    Thanks! Is the Modgpoge you use for the trivet, heat resistant for things out of the oven?- NEVERMIND. just saw your answer and test below. You can use resin to coat them – there are different types for different heat maxes. Too bad about the spray that would have been SO simple. Great video!

    I am so happy that I happened upon your tutorial site. I am just starting to decorate tile using my Cricut. Now I am so excited to try this method <3 You have truly inspired me and I cannot thank you enough.

    Hi, what paper should I use? I tried a PVA GLUE i saw in hardware and a wrapping paper I bought anywhere. But it doesn't work, the color of the paper when it was transferred were foggy, it looked like a tissue paper. ๐Ÿ™ should i really use an inkjet printer, then any paper should work?

    Hi, thank you for sharing informative tutorials. What do you use instead of brush to apply sealer in order to avoid streak brush marks? Sorry I think I missed that part in the video .

    I watched another video like this where the lady said she also used Mod Podge sealer (5 coats) and though it worked great for putting cold drinks on the coaster, it didn't work for hot drinks like hot tea or coffee. She said it started to melt through the sealer. So she ended up having to use a polyurethane (1-2 coats) instead because of wanting to use the coasters for hot drinks as well as cold drinks. Just a suggestion. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the coaster idea!
