RE: ceramic tile decorating/expressions magazine

I saw the article and thought they looked great too - I have two boxes of 6"
tiles that I am tired of moving and thought I might try the process - but I
haven't had any experience with some of the materials.

I am thinking about rolling out thin sheets of sculpey - and let each child
decorate - or have them make canes and cover the tile - use some embossing
powder and highlight - then maybe embellish with beads and/or wire - but not
sure how. I am looking for ideas - what do I do with the tiles when we are

I liked the star book ornament too - I usually like the projects in the
second half of the magazine more than the first-
