I did some paintings on ceramic tiles (8 inch square tiles), placed them into wooden - handmade - frames that I painted to match the pictures on the tiles.  Then, I put a hanger on the back so they can be hung on a wall or you can display them on an easel if you like.  I made 12 of them.  Tell me what y'all think cuz I don't want to make any more of them if nobody thinks they're ok to try and sell.  I don't know how uploading the jpgs works so the pictures of the tiles are displayed here with this post, but I uploaded them to the gallery.  hahaha  Guess we'll see where they show up.  Anyway, if you find them, give me your feedback please.  Thanks!  Whew!!!  I figured it out all by myself.  *giggles*  So here they are!!!  So, click on the thumbnails and you can see the "bigger picture", so to speak.

Nice work - what type of paint did you use? There are some great heat-set paints I've used in a similar fashion, and they are washable.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your positive comments!!!  I used acrylic paints and leading and they are baked on.  I also sealed them with three coats of high gloss outdoor polyurethane, including the frames.  They should hold up nicely if cared for properly.  There is a craft show in my area in September so maybe I'll take these 12 and see what the public's reaction is before I make any more.  I just love doing the paintings on the tiles though.  I could go on forever painting these, but if they don't sell, what would I do with all of them?  haha  I especially like the wildlife and doing paintings for kids rooms.
