QUESTION:  Ink ~ Does pigment ink work on surfaces like tile, porcelain, and terra cotta?

ANSWER:  Normally, using pigment ink on slick surfaces is not a good idea because it will not dry on its own.  However, you can use clear embossing powder to seal the ink, which will give you a nice glossy finish.  It is recommended that you only use this technique for decorative purposed ONLY, such as hanging tiles on the wall.  The image can still be scratched off easily.

Pot Terra Cotta Pot was made using Bella’s Bloom stamp set, Perfect Plum and Palm Plum Craft Ink, and Clear embossing powder.
