Mosaics – My Tile Craft Project


Hi, Rita here from Diamond Tech Lets create something fun using My Tile Kits The great thing about My Tile Kits is that it allows you to transfer images and photos onto the back of the glass shapes contained in each kit These kits come in three different sizes; large square, small square and pebbles Kits contain Image Art paper and instructions Today we’re going to make these vintage style dishwasher magnets using the large tile kits Scan your images and using the photo image software on your computer set the paper size, 5.5 X 8.5 Now your margins Insert your images Try to completely fill up the paper with images, as not to waste Now print Allow your images to sit for about 15-20 minutes so that the ink dries Then use sharp scissors to cut around the shape of your image Once you have your transfers cut, just go ahead an drop them into a small bowl of water, distilled will be perfect and let them sit for a while While those are sitting were going to go ahead and clean the tile surface, so just remove them from their protective sheeting And use a little alcohol to remove any kind of dust and debris from the surface Leave them sitting in the water for about 30 seconds, you’ll know they are ready when the decal starts to slide off Just bring that right over, put it on the back of your glass tile and simply just slide the backing off And then just pat it to absorb all the water And allow it to dry Let your tile dry overnight and place them, transfer-side up, in an oven Set your oven to 345F for 15 minutes Once your tiles have cooled, make the image pop by applying a small amount of white paint to the back of the tile surface Now you’re ready to add your magnet, just peel off and apply the magnet to the back Look for this, and other creative projects on our website and Facebook pages
