  3. Paint Cool2Cast shapes. On the cameo piece, I like to use a fine line brush to paint along the detail line and then paint the outside with the shader brush.

  4. My tile art is built on a wood plaque. For the base of this project, I painted my plaque black so that it gives the appearance of black grout. Set aside to dry.

  5. I like to trace my plaque shape onto brown paper and then lay out my tile, mirrors, Cool2Cast and metal pieces for exact placement.
