[teacherartexchange] Painting on glazed tiles


From: Laurie Reber (lareb18_at_TeacherArtExchange)

Hello All,

I have a friend who is a third grade teacher and she
is doing a Mother's Day project with her students.

She has bought 6 x 8 white glazed tiles and is having
the students draw a picture on the tile. She is using
paint (like a CeramCoat glaze paint that needs no
firing). She has found that the paint chips off due to
the high gloss glaze on the tile.

Do you have any suggestions as to any other medium she
can use (like permanent markers maybe?) and should she
spray a coat of polyurethane over it?

I am really stumped as to how to help her and any of
your suggestions would be really helpful!

Thanks for your input,
