Stamping Surfaces

I had off from school on Monday so hubby and I went shopping to all my favorite stores, Big Lots, Dollar Tree, AC Moore and Wal-mart. On the way home, hubby wanted to stop at Home Depot to look for something to finish his basement bathroom project. I would have waited in the car, but he insisted I come in with him. So, I collected my usual amount of paint color cards and was roaming around when I happened on clear ceramic tile. I've never seen clear ceramic tiles before. Think of the stamping possibilities. The 4 inch tiles would make perfect coasters and the 2 inch tiles would make great pendants. The 4 inch were $1.97 and the 2 inch came in a pack of 4 for $2.98. Then there was a whole sheet of 3/4 inch tiles in clear and clear greens and browns. Unfortunately I only had $2.00 left in my wallet and Frank wouldn't give me any money for more craft stuff so I have to wait until the next Home Depot trip.

Has anybody seen any other surfaces that they thought would be perfect for stamping?

Were the tiles glazed or bisque. Bisque is ceramic without any glaze on it. I suppose Staz-on would work on the glazed. They sound interesting. I might just run up to Home Depot tomorrow sometime. There is also a tile place quite close.

I should rephrase bisque. It is a ceramic piece which has been fired once, but without any glaze.

Those sound neat, Kathy. You could stamp on the bottom and color in with Diamond Glaze that has ink added to it. Then seal it with another coat of DG. Then you could use the coasters without worry of it coming off or scratching.

I'm going to keep an eye out for these, too. Sounds interesting and affordable.

Ann, to me the tiles looked like they were glass. They were clear and you could see through them.

Kathy N., I can see it now, HomeDepot will start having trouble keeping those tiles in stock for some reason! In this case I want to be part of the problem rather than the solution. *LOL*

A great surface to stamp on are those black metal trays that are made for mosaics. I bought a stack of them awhile back and finally got around to stamping on one. You can get the details on my blog.

LOL, Kathy. I understand the 'ceramic tile' reference & figure they are either glass or plastic. But actually doesn't matter which since stamping on all of them--ceramic, glass, plastic--requires 'special' inks/paints. For many of us that's no problem! These sound cool! I like the 'reverse' stamping idea! Would be my first 'go to' technique.

I love hardware/home improvement stores for finding crafting materials--especially stampable materials!!! Couple of my fave departments...

Plumbing: PVC pipes, collars & such (I like the white plastic) can make great projects

Lighting: Shades like globes (glass/plastic) can turn into containers/vases.

Roofing: Flashing is the same weight as craft metal. Often a better buy if you do lots of metal crafts. Aluminum is best buy for price, but copper is my fave (always pricey).

Flooring: You never know what you'll find--wood, linoleum squares, stone.

Great topic, Kathy!
