Paper Masking Cobblestone Tile

Designer: Kaitlyn Miller


  1. Wipe off bisque with a damp sponge to remove any dust.
  2. Cut out desired shapes for masking out of paper and set aside.
  3. Be sure shapes are small enough to fit on tile with space in between.
  4. Apply 2 coats of black (FN-009) to your tile with a soft fan brush.
  5. Be sure to allow glaze to dry between coats. Brushing the second coat on in the opposite direction will help mask brush strokes.
  6. While second coat of glaze is wet, place cut shapes onto tile in desired design.
  7. Apply 2 coats of White Cobblestone (SG-202) to the tile, brushing outward over paper to ensure sharp edges.
  8. Remove paper shapes from tile before glaze is fully dry.
  9. Tint Cobblestone by adding one coat of color on top and with Slime Time (SC-98) and Blue Yonder (SC-11).
  10. Apply one coat of White Cobblestone (SG-202) inside the black areas revealed by removing the paper leaving a black outline around each shape.
  11. Tint the Cobblestone shapes by applying one coat of Candy Apple Red (SC-73) leaving the black outline around each shape .
  12. Allow to dry completely.
  13. Fire to Cone 06.
