2x2" tiles from Home Depot or Lowe's (actually, they're about 1-7/8x 1-7/8", but they are marked 2x2"). They come on a sheet of -- I don't remember how many for something stupid like $2 or something. They have a rubbery substance holding them all together, I just used a spare pair of scissors to snip that off. I'll probably go back and sand the edges to get the last remnant off.

It's Avery Clear Full Page Labels. I think I got it at Office Max.

I printed the image on clear sticker paper and just put them on. I'm planning on making trivets with 4x4 tiles, and for those, I'll then coat them with Envirotex to make them sealed and heat-proof.

The images are all from pccrafter.com.

I used to make the tiles with inkjet decal paper, but it was a reall pain the neck and I quit making them. First I had to print out the image on the decal paper, seal the image with spray sealant and wait until it dried. Then I had to soak the decal and put it on the tile, then wait until that dried. Once that was dry, I sprayed a Krylon Crystal Clear (I'm probably spelling that wrong) over that. The whole process was just too smelly and messy.

For magnets, I figured I didn't need to seal them.

What a totally clever idea! I think I'm going to have to give this a shot!

I made some 2" tile magnets today. Well, they're just the tiles right now, I need to get some E6000 to glue the magnets on the back.

I want it ALL. And I want it delivered.
A clean house is next to impossible.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I haven't had time to come back to this board!

I haven't been to a David Hoff seminar, but my MIL has been taking classes from him for years and years, so it's almost as good. LOL. She's taught me a lot. One day I want to go to Reno for one of his seminars he does there.  Most of the shops around here only have basic dry brushing classes.

The watering can - first we basecoated it with stains and then we drew the birds on with a pen - I can't remember the name of the pen and my notebook from the seminar is buried in Christmas stuff at the moment.  Then we brushed on the color with smaller brushes, just kind of dropping it on, almost in scribbles. The watering can was fun. I usually enjoy fired products a lot more, but I loved doing the watering can.

I got my kiln - but I need to get an electrician out. No 220 outlets in my garage. Miracle of miracles, though, the wiring is there - I just need the wires hooked to the fuse box and an outlet put in. My FIL says it will take about 15 minutes and less t han $20 for supplies, and I'll be good to go. Now I've got a whole bunch of new stuff to learn, about kiln maintenance and firing and such.  And since I'm getting a divorce, I'm guessing my MIL won't be the fount of information that I had counted on.

Ooh! Ceramics! My new favorite, too.  I've been painting since last November, when I went to visit my MIL for Thanksgiving. She owns a ceramics shop.  And she's giving me a kiln for my birthday!! Whee!! I should have it next month.

I don't drybrush, but I do wetbrush. I even got to go to a seminar at the Doc Holliday plant in Kentucky this past March. (Pics of the pieces I made there: http://www.jazgordon.com/wordpress/index.php?p=55#more-55 )

Is that vase from a David Hoff seminar? I REALLY want to go to one of those. There's a ceramics show here in October, and I think he's doing some classes.
