I can't stop!

I made this 4" tile with a less busy background, and used a stamp on top.  I think it might become a set of coasters!

And, here is a set of coasters I made, using only one color and firing them several times.  I also put cork on the bottom, and sealed them with Krylon Triple Thick Gloss spray.

Wall Art

Today, I watched a video about making wall art with alcohol ink.  So, I took the glass out of the 8" x 10" frame, dropped on some color and fired it.  This is the result after only one fire.  I could add more paint and alcohol and fire, but I really kinda like it!  I also think that it would look better in a white frame.

Stencil play

When I saw Mary Beth Shaw's video on using stencils with alcohol ink - I was very intrigued.  It is what started me on this journey.  Since then, I've found myself learning more and more about this fun medium.  The stencils don't work as well on tiles (below) as they do on Yupo, but I still like it!

Still Playing

So, I'm still playing with alcohol ink on ceramic tiles.  Still playing with fire. It's so much fun!

This one is on a 6" x 6" square ceramic tile.  I stamped the dragonfly after it was done, using Stazon ink pad.

This one is on a 4" tile, playing with monochromatic tones.
