New Polymer clay tile
I sold the last two tiles I had and also the vase so I created another tile yesterday.I start off with a regular tumbled marble tile used in kitchen back splashes.I then cover the sides and front with a layer of textured Polymer clay and bake that in the oven until cured.Then I hand sculpt flowers, leaves and other embellishments and bake those.These embellishments are then painted along with the textured tile. I adhere all the embellishments, add semi precious stones, and seal the entire tile with three coats of a protective sealer.They can be grouted onto a wall or there is a place carved on the back to hang it from.I've signed and dated the back.
This one is for auction on Ebay
you can also purchase it on my Etsy site.
