Tattoo paper sign

Missy Briggs

Tattoo paper isn't just for temporary tattoos. I use it to design on a variety of surfaces! This fun sign was created in minutes by printing and adhering to... faux wood ceramic tile!  

This ceramic wood tile is smaller and lighter in weight than a real piece of wood.

    Optional step

    Seal and protect your finished piece with spray or brush on Mod Podge or similar matte finish medium. I used an acrylic gloss medium.

    Finished! It looks great, has a higher degree of detail than you would likely ever draw directly onto wood...and you can grout it onto your wall or floor!
