- I like to paint some of my more porous wall and floor tiles.
- Brush with acrylic paint. Set aside to dry. Spray with Aleene’s Spray Acrylic Sealer. Set aside to dry.
- 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.
- 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.
- I like to trace my plaque shape onto brown paper and then lay out my tile, mirrors, Cool2Cast and metal pieces for exact placement.
- If you want to change the color of your metal shapes, you can use Rub ‘n Buff or acrylic inks to create the colors of your choice.
- I glue all of my pieces onto my painted plaque with Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue.
