Happy Friday everyone, Leslie-Rahye bringing you a fun project that would be super as a hostess gift or a seasonal decoration for your message center or refrigerator! I'm a magnet junkie at my house...constantly we are crafting one magnet or another and my favorite are the ones that I've crafted on ceramic tiles. The problem with the ceramic tiles however is they are HEAVY and even with the super strong magnets can slide on your surfaces! That's where the EcoArtBoard is AWESOME. It has the thickness of a ceramic tile but none of the weight! Check out my procedure for creating these fabulous faux ceramic tile magnets!
For this project you will need:
Wicked Witches AP-458
Paris Trunk Ink Black
Sakura Hobby Crafts 3D Crystal Lacquer
Strong Magnets (mine were from Staples)
I began by printing my Collage Page using the Photo Printing tools that allows you to print your "image" (in this case the whole collage page) as a 5×7" photo and a 3½×5" photo.
I then selected EcoArtBoards from the variety package that would fit my images. The images were adhered to the EcoArtBoards with Beacon 3-in-1. They were trimmed and edges were sanded. A light application of black was added to the edges to give the impression of the edge of the tile.
The tiles in this photo have had one coat of Sakura Crystal Lacquer.
They are shiny at this point but do not look quite "tile" like.
A 2nd thick coat of lacquer was added to the tiles.
Once dry I added a magnet to the back with Beacon Fabri-Tac.
I love how they look! I hope you enjoyed my project!Only 2 more months of Halloween crafting left!!!
