TILE STYLE: Painting and Decorating Your Own Designs

MARION ELLIOT    Book Number: 86109    Product format: Hardback

There is something very special about the colour and particularly the texture of mosaic tilework, be it Moroccan style splashbacks, alphabet tiles or sgraffito fish tiles. This collection of 30 projects shows you how to customise tiles for all areas of the home with 300 stunning colour photos plus practical information on techniques such as stamping, using stencils, painting, découpage and gilding, the variety of tiling ideas are for floors, walls, doors, furniture and splashbacks as well as applying tiles to tables, frames, window boxes, planters and plant pots, mirror frames or a crazy paving shelf, a mosaic bed head or as a trim around a marble tray or table. The Pueblan tiles have a mixture of Moorish, Spanish and Native Indian cultures with their bold blue outline and repeating patterns. The William Morris tiles have flowing lines of a flower painting and a bold, naturalistic style. Inspired by the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow School are the rose-and-thorned stem tiles which can be used together in blocks or as a border. The silver découpage tile is created using a water-based Italian size and brush and aluminium composite loose leaf. Templates photocopiable, 160 glossy pages, 300 colour photos.
