FUN WITH ALCOHOL INK ON CERAMIC TILES - Class Limit 8
Joyce Clair, 1 Session, Thursday, October 18, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
No experience needed to paint fall designs on ceramic tiles with alcohol ink! The instructor demonstrates easy ways to apply colorful alcohol ink with Q-tips, felt, sponges, and brushes to white glazed tiles. Select your favorite colors and create a design free-hand or with a template. When dry, tiles are sealed with varnish to make them heat & water resistant. All supplies provided to create 2 coasters and 1 trivet. The instructor offers an information handout if you want to continue this craft on your own. The class objectives are to have fun with alcohol ink, learn a variety of easy painting techniques, and create seasonal designs on 3 tiles. A supply fee of $15 will be collected the first day of class.
