Method
Ensure you carry this project out in a well ventilated area with parental supervision. The ink can stain so wear protective gloves and cover your work area well.
Apply a good layer of alcohol blending solution to a tile and spread to fully cover with a paintbrush.
The simplest method is to apply a few drops of alcohol ink, one colour or more. The drops will spread out.

Why not try adding a few drops to one end, tip up the tile and let the ink run down.
Add a few drops in another colour at the opposite end and repeat.

You could also use an cotton ear bud to swirl around some colour and then add drops of a different alcohol ink colour.

Leave to fully dry.
Apply a layer of glossy glue sealer and allow to dry.
Stick felt pads underneath the tiles so the coasters don't scratch a table.

Tie a set up with a pretty ribbon and these make a lovely gift for someone special.
