Having Fun With Tiles
Today I had fun with these bathroom tiles I bought. A while back I had taken a class at Jerry's Artarama using alcohol inks and Stampbord Tiles. I thought I would see if these inks worked on these bathroom tiles.
This process was so much fun! You never really know what will come out when you start combining the inks with the alcohol, or if you want to drip or sponge them on, etc.
With this tile, I first wiped the surface of the tile with alcohol. Then I dropped one drop of a colored ink onto the surface. Before it had a chance to dry, I blew through a straw over the ink and pushed it around. I continued in this fashion, sometimes dropping a color near another one, or on top of it, or near it.
Last, I added a little touch with a stamp and pale ink.
