How to do Additive Relief Sculpting on a Ceramic Tile Panel


Who says ceramic tiles have to be flat? Using additive relief sculpting on a flat tile can lead to some beautiful and unique dimensional tiles.

In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Creative Tile Making, Angelica Pozo demonstrates how she creates interesting tile panels with depth with additive relief sculpting and carving techniques. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

    You mentioned grouting between your grouted tiles. How would you mount them and to what kind of material? What type of grout do you use? Since you made a border around the outside, would you use a frame-type backing? Any advice is helpful. thank you for the clear demo.

    I love the video. How thick is the beginning clay. It looked to be about 1/2 inch.
