Freehand Painted Tiles


Painted TilesWhile a stenciled-tile technique will produce a neat, uniform look, tiles painted with your design will look freeform and arty. Even children's painting looks professional here. This technique works well with other ceramic items, such as mugs and plates.

You'll need:
- clean ceramic tile
- palette or containers for paint
- soft brushes and/or an applicator bottle and tip
- ceramic paints that bake on in your oven

Painted Tiles1. Paint the tiles using a small brush or an applicator bottle as if you were painting on paper. If the paint is too transparent, let the first coat dry, then add additional coats of paint. You can also mix paint to create different colors. Bottle and tip kits are perfect for drawing and writing on tiles. Just pour the paint into the bottle and draw.

2. When your tiles are finished, bake and cool the tiles according to the manufacturer's instructions.
