I have altered a ceramic wall tile for my project today, it’s just a basic tile that you can get from any DIY store.


What I did


·       My tile was glossy so I started by prepping it with a coat of Fresco Snowflake paint, I sponged it on with a piece of cut and dry foam using a light pouncing motion until an even coverage was achieved, I let this dry thoroughly.

·       I stamped my bird directly onto my tile using black Archival ink and again onto a post-it note to mask it off on the tile. I heat set my image on the tile.

·       I masked my image and then used Picked Raspberry Distress paint applied with a pouncing action using a piece of cut and dry to cover the whole of the exposed area.

·       I then used Salty Ocean and a rubber stamp to add colour, followed with some white gesso sponged through a stencil. I avoided the area where I would be stamping my words.



·       I now very gently removed my mask, and stamped my words. I now added a tiny bit of blue stamping to the bottom corner below the words to tie it all together.




·       I now painted my bird using acrylic paints. I used the colours I had on my craft mat from colouring my tile, adding in yellow and using white to vary the shades.

·       I edged my tile with the yellow paint when I had finished colouring my bird.

·       When it was dry I gave it a coat of glue and seal to protect it.
