Tiles Two: Another Technique

This series of tiles is created using craft inks and clear embossing powder. The tiles are then baked in the oven - if you try using your embossing gun, it will take you forever and a day, as the tile absorbs and equalizes the heat faster than the embossing powder melts. I was very pleased with the range of color I achieved, the "painterly technique" I tried on the second example, and the fact that this technique works equally well on glazed and unglazed tiles. The first and third examples are 6x6", but the second tile measures 12x12". If you wanted to do coasters, I suggest the 4x4". -Kathy

I love the second one. I might just have to learn that "painterly" technique.
