Art: Shapies, Rubbing Alcohol, & Tiles

Today we had friends over and experimented with fun art. We started with white tiles from Home Depot (A whole $0.08 each!), Sharpies, and Rubbing Alcohol. First we drew on our tiles with our Sharpies.

Then we used eye droppers to drop 91% Rubbing Alcohol on our tiles.

Which then lead to experimenting with ways to move the rubbing alcohol around the tile. We tried blowing, straws, tilting, & paper towels.

(A then had a blast making art on her tile and then making art on paper towels. She has a large stack of them saved up, wait till you see her custom wrapping paper!)

Then we learned that we could do a later of maker and then rubbing alcohol, let it dry, and then add another drawing on top. Stencils worked great for adding the additional images.

And one of the best things we learned through this process was, if you don’t like it, just add more rubbing alcohol to the tile & wipe it dry!

Here are some of our masterpieces!

After these have dried I will seal them with a coat of Polyurethane and add some felt to the bottom.
