Studio Tile Project
The exterior design of my studio had to match our house, so it is cream-colored stucco - BLAND! I added green doors to liven it up a bit.
Then another idea began to emerge. As they were building the studio, I noticed a pile of tile pieces that they had discarded when tiling the bathroom. I thought - hmmm - what can I do with those? So I kept the tiles.
I host a family art project each year at the holidays, and I decided that it would be fun to paint tiles. I thought that would be an easy, colorful project.
As I was experimenting with the process to prepare for the holiday project, inspiration struck! The studio walls - THAT'S where they go! So as our family painted, we decided that was the perfect place for them. A variety of methods were used - alcohol inks, regular fluid acrylics, designs using glue as resist, and even acrylic texture mediums.
The result is that I have a unique collection of many colors and styles, painted by some of my family and myself. I cannot imagine a better way to liven up a bland stucco wall. And a great way to recycle tile pieces!
This is a "living" wall - and we will continue to paint tiles and add to the fun. So check back for updates. We still have some very creative family members who will be visiting soon!
Incredible art by a wonderful artist. If you love art, the Texas Hill Country and nature, don’t miss the opening of this incredible studio. Magic…
Very creative. So happy to have participated and so much fun to paint those tiles.
