Painting on Tile

2nd and 3rd graders tried their hand at painting on a different surface this week. The surface used was a glazed tile. The lesson was based on the plan listed below.

Students could draw whatever they desired, etching their design on paper first before transferring it to the tile. Once they were satisfied with their drawing, special paint was provided. (Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paint, is a speciality paint used to paint glazed surfaces.) Students discovered that painting on a glazed surface was trickier than it looked. Application of paint required different brush strokes and plenty of patience!!!! Best results required layering of paint to produce an opaque effect. Once finished each tile had to be baked in the oven in order to affix the paint to the tile. Great job students for your first attempt at a new technique. 🙂
