Whale Wishes Coasters by Gail
Hello Rubber Dance friends. Gail here today with something I haven't done for a long long time!!
I was fitting a new shelf unit in my craft room and uncovered some dusty tiles in a forgotten corner. Then I also stumbled across the paints I use on them so I decided to paint up a couple of the tiles.
Once the outliner was dry I held them briefly under a cold running tap, which removed all the distress ink I didn't want, and patted them dry with a towel. This is also the time to clean up any lines that are messy or incomplete. I use a craft knife to cut away any excess.
I coloured with Ming Blue and Ivory. My 'painting tools' are a cocktail stick, some small sponges and a cotton bud for cleaning away mistakes. I thought the whales looked a bit ungrounded at this point so sponged a bit of Peacock colour randomly at the tile edges. Once painted they need to dry for at least 24 hours before being cooked in the oven at 150°C for 35 minutes.
Two happy whale coasters. Maybe I'll make a couple of cups to go with them!
Hope you enjoyed my project.
Thanks for dropping by. Take care and have a crafty day. Hugz
