After lots of play in our workshops last week with alcohol inks, resists, watercolors, pull up pages, and more… this seemed a truly fitting quote!  I have placed it on the alcohol ink background created on a glossy ceramic tile that I burned the alcohol off of.  Happy play time!

What kind of play do you enjoy?

  1. Why do you ‘burn off’ the alcohol on the ceramic tile? Does it change the colour any? Did you stamp the quote on the tile or is it a rub on?
    Such beautiful work. Always. Love your blog!

    • Thanks for the great questions Kara! Burning off the alcohol does give it a different look. It changes the pattern and leaves some darker areas making more color variation. The quote was just added as a digital image and is not on the tile.

  2. Thank you for your reply. Do you coat/spray your tiles with anything to make the alcohol ink permanent or is it permanent enough to use as a coaster? What else would one do with them? (Other than admire their beauty!)…wish I could visit your workshops and the Tessera Gallery…

    • Wish you could too Kara! Before using them as a coaster, or trivit, I spray with a clear gloss by Krylon. I also put some cork or felt on the bottom. I have seen them framed very nicely, but haven’t done that myself.
