Tile Art for Father's Day

or any other occasion.  Recently, I saw this idea on Pinterest and I knew I had to try it.  We are going to make these for our Father's Day gifts as coasters.

Supplies Used:
Sharpie markers (must be Sharpie)

I had my little one draw a picture and write his name.  The only guidance he needed was a reminder not to place his hand on the tile or it would smear his work.

After baking in the oven, I checked to make sure that it was set it by running my finger gently over it.  It turned out great.  I only had a bit of it smear off in one area but I think it was perhaps because the tile was not clean as well as I had thought.

We had an instant Father's Day gift in minutes which is perfect since I am busy assessing.

Happy Teaching and Learning!

  2. Why does it need to be baked? What happens to it when you bake it? The teacher next door to me did it and just sprayed it with shellac. Do you know what the difference is?

    1. Heidi,
      I am not sure the difference. It was easy and quick.

  3. Do they have to be specific Sharpie markers? Permanent ones. The flip chart ones are water based - I'm thinking they won't work?

  4. My colors smeared. Don't know what went wrong :(

  5. Can you bake the tile if it has paint picture on it???
