Painting Ceramic Tiles

Category: New Yard | Posted: Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:30 pm


A few years back, I taught ceramics and was a teacher for a line of prodcut from Colors For Earth. I would design pieces, and then teach classes on different and developed techniques using the color line.

Anyway, I am planning on picking it up again and custom hand painting ceramic tiles for bathrooms, kitchens, and pools.

The tiles pictured are three 4 1/4" tiles set in a picture frame. I first place for slip trailing technique on this piece at the Dallas Ceramic Show in 2003.

Since I still have a kiln, I figured why not starting up again and start teaching again, and have an additional income! Most of my designs have always been inspired by gardening and my own flowers.

Those tiles are so unusual and individual!! I know I would have them in my home any time. I'm so glad you have decided to start up again and I hope you will show us the tiles that you make as they are completed.

Those are beautiful. With the painting ability you have I know you will make a return to ceramic painting a success.
Yes, please show us new ones as you get them going.

Thank you all!
I will post more as they are completed. I am going to be in a show Dec. 6th and 7th in Buda. It is a yearly arts and crafts fair where all items have to be handmade by the artists. Should be fun, and hopefully will get some leads and interest in the custom work. I am excited.

If you do a show in Dallas or Ft. Worth please let me know. I would love to come see them and you in person.

I think your handpainted tiles ate marvelous .I wish I was near enough to attend the fair there.I'll have to check on maps to see just where you are located.
