42  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Collage on Tile - Coasters on: December 29, 2003 07:44:30 PM
This is a fun craft I've been doing with friends to create low-budget gifts.  ENJOY!  I've also done this on IKEA frames that have the mirror in the middle. Paper Zone has some fun map papers.




4.25 x4.25 white square tiles as many as you want
paper clippings to collage with nothing thicker than card stock

1 sponge brush
Mod Podge Matte-Mat or Plaid Royal Coat Decoupage Finish

Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane Clear Gloss (Oil based)
Brush- designed for oil-based finishes or polyurethane
Mineral spirits (paint-thinner)

Craft Glue - Aleenes Original Tacky Glue

Follow directions on decoupage bottle.  Cut out desired collage or even a simple square of paper. Brush on back on paper and stick onto tile. After tile is decorated. Brush a final coat over the top of all the design. If the paper overlaps the edges, ensure it seals down.
Let dry. Repeat for all tiles in set.
Brush can be cleaned or tossed.

Brush on Polyurethane Clear Gloss. Let dry.
Clean brush with mineral spirits thoroughly then with soapy warm water.

Next day:
Cut out Felt squares the size of the tile.
Glue on with craft glue.
Do not stack coasters until craft glue drys.
