Lately, I've been making Art Tiles. Hundreds of them
I don't know why.
My tiles are 2" x 2" and start with a substrate of book board. I'm layering all kinds of things on top using gesso, paint, gel medium, napkins, tissue paper, book pages, magazine pages, whatever I can find in my studio.
As a final layer, I cover the tile with Diamond Glaze or a Leveling Gel (I don't really see a difference between these products so buy whatever is less expensive!)
You might ask — what are you going to do with all these tiles?
Honestly, I don't have a plan yet but I'm having fun experimenting with different layering ideas on a small scale and eventually, something will inspire me to make them into a cohesive piece of art.
This method of working reminds me when I did the same process — making lots of 6" squares of fabric to make a quilt. Hmmmm. Some things never change!
