Tile Art
  • White Ceramic Tiles 4x4
  • Permanent Markers multi-colors
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • optional Lighter
  • optional Dropper
  1. Color the tiles using a variety of color combinations and designs.
  2. Using a spoon or straw, put Little puddles of alcohol all over the colored tile. Do not add too much alcohol at once or the color will all run together and get muddy. Make sure to add just a little bit at a time all over and let the drops/puddles naturally run into each other.
  3. The tile will be mostly covered in alcohol at this point.
  4. Let dry for 1-2 hours. As tiles are drying, you can add a few drops of alcohol in areas that fade out more than others so they will keep the mosaic look.
  5. Optional: instead of waiting for the alcohol to dry you can use a lighter to burn the alcohol off (adult job - make sure to do this step in a safe place)

Recipe Notes

Use these beautiful tiles for display or they make great coasters! You can even use them for a backsplash.
