You know how sometimes things seem to be meant, well the company that made my bedroom furniture also make kitchens, and they happened to be looking for someone to paint tiles for clients. See it was meant to happen 🙂
I have just finished painting these tiles for my first client, they wanted indigenous British wildlife hand painted on their own tiles . My favourite subject!
The tiles were challenging in that they are small and long. I always test fire tiles before painting, this time the tile gave me some concern as the smell that came off was very strong. I was expecting the tile to have had a plastic coating and to be ruined but I was wrong, the porous backs must have been treated with something but the glaze was fine.
I didn’t want to take the risk of the tiles sugaring so they had to be completed in 2 fires.
And a badger.
