Where is the best place to find these and can I use my copics to color in them?

Thanks

Check out Lowe's, Home Depot. And I love terracotta saucers as stampable coasters & trivets (Garden dept)

Can't help with Copics.

I am doing these this year but haven't started yet. I have seen tutorials suggest sponging in colored StazOn and others suggest using Sharpies. If Sharpies work I imagine Copics will, but may not blend like normal. I am planning to put small felt circles on the bottom - maybe you could do a test circle with marker, then cover it up?

I bought some tiles today....going to do a test run on one of them...I have used stampin up ink on them. Used those daubber things but I would prefer to color in. I will keep you posted. They were pretty cheap so no big deal if it smudges.

Sounds like a good plan, Christine! Are your tiles glazed? If so, you already know you'll have to use inks/paints that will bond to the glaze.

The 'good' news is that if you don't like the results you can often erase the work with acetone-based nail polish remover & try again.

If you're planning to do several tiles, it might be worth getting some ceramic/glass paints to use for the coloring. They'll last a long time.
