Bring colour and creativity to your hand-made or shop-brought tiles with this collection of 200 decorative designs. Every entry features a photograph of the finished design, a charted diagram, instructions in the order of work and advice on alternative colour variations. Each design can be used in a scheme and mixed and matched with others in the book. At-a-glance icons indicate degree of difficulty and appropriate application techniques for different shapes of tile. Core techniques are demonstrated with step-by-step photographs, from making moulds and transferring designs to decorating with paint, stamps, stencils, sgraffito and inlays. There is also useful information on suppliers and resources, as well as a gallery of inspirational examples from well-known tile artists.

Review:
"This is a book of 200 brilliant, colourful designs to apply to
ceramic tiles. It's a fabulous book, packed with information about making
tiles - moulding, slabbing, slipcasting, and then decorating them with
paint, stamps, stencils sgraffito, inlays... the choice is huge and you'll
undoubtedly be led on to designing you own by the time you've finished!" -- Craftsman Magazine, May 2007

"With so much variety, I'm prepared to bet that anyone looking at
this book will come away with at least one new idea that could justify the
not-unreasonable purchase price. Those new to the craft will appreciate the
simple approach and the sheer volume of ideas that are bound to prove
inspiring." -- ArtBook Review, March 2007
