I made this nameplate for the birthday party of our friends who recently bought a house together. In the Netherlands, many, many people have some sort of tile next to their door with the names of the people living in that house, which I find cute. I know my friends didnt have one yet, and I thought they might appreciate to get one.

This is a 20x25cm tile, painted with porcelain paint, and I can tell you one thing for sure: our alphabet is NOT easy to paint consistently. I had to take multiple tries on our own letters way more often than on the elvish script!

The script at the bottom is their names in tengwar, Quenya-style. (Tengwar are Tolkien's Elvish Runes) The round thing in the upper right corner is "Love" in circular Galifreyan. I know both of them love the Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who, so I'm hoping this gift will be well-received Smiley

Calling all talented witches and wizards to join us in the Winter Semester of the Harry Potter Craftalong.
