Subway Tiles

Subway Speak is the latest video in the series Clearly the Best Crafting with Close To My Heart. The video inspires us to create home décor pieces using a few products (listed below).

Today's video is Clearly The Best: Subway Speak (S02E09). The CTMH Corp. description is "Say it with subway art! Make a tile using this fun technique and the My Creations™ 6" x 6" canvas display from Close To My Heart."

Products used in the video:
Some of the tips mentioned in the video:
  • this project needs time to dry between the steps - sometimes it is best to let it dry overnight
  • make sure you mix enough paint and re-inker to cover your canvas from the start as it may be difficult to match the color if you run out
  • mix the paint and re-inker with something solid like a bone folder - not your paintbrush - because the color may get unevenly distributed in the brush during mixing
  • for your masks use repositionable adhesive and make sure it adheres well all the way to the edges so paint does not seep under the mask; this will give you crisp edges
  • distress the edges with Archival Black ink
I hope today's video inspired you to try create your own subway tiles. If you are ready to place an order the Show Now button will take you to my Online Business Address.
