Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Easy-to-conquer designs....Every part of the process—indeed, of the more than 25 designs—is well documented with clear directions and color photos. In part for novices; in part for those firing up their skills.”—Booklist. “Shows how to add color designs to existing tiles without an expensive replacement job...a very practical book for public libraries on an often underutilized decorative feature.”—Library Journal.

Synopsis:

Thoroughly transform even the plainest surface, create the illusion of space, light, and warmth, and bring sparkle to your home. Just one look at these dazzling color images will inspire you to attempt the more than 25 exciting projects for making, decorating, and using tiles throughout the house. With plain white store-bought tiles as a "canvas", experiment with simple techniques, such as painting, decoupage, stenciling, and transfers. Imaginative designs include a garden trellis splashed with flowers, a sun-drenched Mediterranean scene, and a charming Delft drawing. As you grow more skilled, handcraft tiles out of clay following traditional methods of rolling, molding, and casting. Decorate them with rich glazes, bold medieval motifs, or even modern silkscreen prints. Then expand the scope of your tilemaking: pictures of tiles in different settings offer a taste of the limitless possibilities for creating a variety of attractive effects. You'll get satisfying and lasting results.
