Painting Porcelain Tiles

This is a great way to recycle broken dishes. Just paint them and turn them into works of art. 
I use this method to make filler mosaic tiles for my projects. In other words no specific design.

The paint is permanent and food and dishwasher safe. -Always follow manufacturer's directions-

Tools and Materials

Assortment of Porcelain pieces
Porcelain paints and markers
Soft Bristle Brushes
One thing to consider is the color shade of the pieces. 
Darker shades of porcelain may have a different result.
Here are some different shapes, sizes, and colors.

After one coat of paint
Note: Allow 24 hours between coats of paint.

 After adding details and some 'bling'.
-Wait another 24 hours before baking-

Bake in a 300ºF (150ºC) oven for 35 minutes.
Now you have a unique tile for your mosaic project.
