  • Find white ceramic tile at any hardware store (they should be under a dollar each). Make sure to clean the surface thoroughly with soap and water.

Color with Sharpies! Pick a combination of dark and vibrant colors to create contrast. There are no wrong choices!

  • Use a stirring spoon  or eyedropper to methodically drop small “pools” of alcohol onto the tile. If you drop too much, the colors will all blur together and you won’t get any circles or patterns. Let dry! It can take up to half an hour, so just be patient!

  • If you think you added too much alcohol, you can go back and add more to create new “pools” on top. It will bloom again!

  • Seal it using a spray fixative first. Hold the tile at least 6 inches away and spray lightly over it. If you spray too closely or too much, the ink will reactivate and blur again. Do it in layers. After that, you can use a varnish or polyurethane to seal it with a glossy coat! Shine, baby, shine!

  • As a finishing touch, glue felt to the bottom of the tile to prevent the edges from scratching your table.

IF you’re really feelin’ crazy, you can add MORE Sharpie on top of the sealed layer!
