For the first time, I wanted to do a tutorial on how to apply a paint design to a ceramic tile surface. I was hoping to have a better understanding of the process and also to see some simple designs that I could apply to a tile.
Paint has a lot of different finishes. I wanted to show you something a little more straightforward that can be used in your own home. For this tutorial we will be using two basic finishes, natural and black.
I had a few comments from people about the black finished tiles. One person wanted to know what the difference was between the natural and black finishes. I showed him and he was wondering why I had a black tile on my black walls. Well, black is a matte finish. A matte finish is very rough, and when you put it on a surface it is very smooth.
There is also a slight difference in the finish of black tiles that are made from a clay that is ground to a powder. The clay is then mixed with a small amount of water and mixed in a kiln until it forms a uniform color. The black tiles are more of a thick paint and so will be more of a black finish, though they are still a matte finish.
It is a good thing to mention that matte finishes are very rough. When you get a matte finish, it is almost like you are painting on a smooth glass. The matte finish is not very easy to look at. The matte finish will be different on different surfaces so the first time you open a door and see a black finish, you’ll be very confused and probably a bit upset.
My advice is to use the right paint for your surface. Once you are satisfied with a surface, it is easier to use the same design color on different surfaces.
Matte finishes are a tricky thing. Different surfaces will actually affect the color and depth of your finish. For example, marble floors will be completely different than marble countertops, depending on the type of marble. When you see a finish like that, it can be a little tricky for the first time. You’ll need to experiment with different colors and shades to find the right one for your surface.
You can also experiment with different colors for different finishes, to see how different they will look, and what will work for your surface. You can also make it easier to blend by adding a little oil to the paint (I use white paint with oil in it), but be sure to use it in small amounts so you don’t cause streaks or run-off.
I love the idea of making your own designs. I know that a lot of people do it, but I really like the color ideas you can come up with. The more you do it, the more versatile and creative you will be. Just remember, you are painting on a really expensive surface. So you will probably want to use the best quality paint you can find.
I know this is a good time to point out that I don’t hate any of the tutorials I have seen for this, so feel free to share your favorites with me. If you have any questions or need help, feel free to contact me anytime at [email protected].
