Hand-painted ceramic tiles
Choose smooth and plain ceramic tile designs in light color for your painting ideas. If you will paint a tile as a stand-alone art piece, the simpler the tile the better. You can paint any ceramic tile that already exists in your house, adding color and your favorite decoration patterns to your living spaces.
Purchase ceramic tile paint, acrylic paint or an oil-based paint. It is extremely important that you use the correct type of paint in order for it to adhere to the ceramic tile and not be affected by exposure to heat and water.
Here is an example of painting ceramic tiles with acrylic paint and alcohol. Start with cleaning and degreasing the surface of the tile. Then brush it with alcohol.. The alcohol evaporates quickly, so you need to add it to the tile surface to keep it wet.
The wet surface help create a watercolor-like effect on your ceramic tile. It makes easy to mix colors and create truly unique designs. Let it dry and finish with a layer or two of varnish.
