Thoroughly transform even the plainest surface, create the illusion of space, light and warmth, and bring color and sparkle to your home. Ceramic tiles can work magic by brightening a bathroom, ornamenting a hallway, and adding character to fireplaces, worktops, and other surrounds. Try out this creative new approach and achieve the look you want by making and decorating your own tiles. Just one look at these dazzling color images will inspire you to attempt every one of the more than 25 exciting projects here. Using plain white store-bought tiles as a "canvas", experiment with simple decorative techniques, such as painting, decoupage, stenciling, and transfers. Among the designs you can use to create imaginative schemes that suit every mood: a garden trellis splashed with flowers, a sun-drenched Mediterranean scene, and a charming Delft drawing. As you grow more skilled, experience the pleasures of making handcrafted tiles out of clay. Follow traditional methods of rolling, molding, and casting, and decorate them with rich glazes, bold medieval motifs, or even modern silkscreen prints. All the basic materials and equipment you need are covered, as well as practical advice for working with the tiles, including preparing surfaces, cutting and setting, planning a decorative scheme, and achieving a professional finish. If you want to expand the scope of your tilemaking, pictures of tiles in different settings offer a taste of the limitless possibilities for creating a variety of attractive effects. You'll get satisfying and lasting results, and art that beautifully displays your creativity.
