Handmade tiles for a mosaic
Sometimes in a mosaic I want to maintain a realistic look and the tiny details might get lost if I resort to only using tiny tile pieces. When that is the case, I just make my own tiles. For the downtown scene that I'm currently working on, I've decided to make many of the small signs myself so the words are still legible from far away. For the Nubel Theater I made five individual letter tiles. Unfortunately in the first glaze firing they came out a little too orange so I'm adding another coat of a yellow orange mix on top. These glazes are different than the first try so they should be more golden.
