  1. what paint and sealing process did you use

  2. The kids made design on a 1 inch piece of paper and then repeated it 3 times to make a symmetrical design. With carbon paper, they traced the design on to the bisque tiles. Using a fine tip squeeze bottle, they traced the outline of their pattern with black glaze. After the black dried, they used colored glazes to finish the tile. After all the glazing the kids did, I put two coats of clear glaze on the tiles before firing. The grout is sealed, but there’s nothing on top of the tiles other than that.

    Where did you purchase the base for the table or did you just add a top to an existing table?
