Wednesday in the studio
Today Ann showed me how to finish the tiles we made yesterday by smoothing the edges and giving each tile a slight curve to keep them from warping. After finishing the tiles I got to work planning out the fireplace surround for my dining room. Ann suggested I work from a lifesize layout, so I spent today cutting out a template for each type of tile I plan to make. For the last part of the day I began drawing the tile patterns onto the large template, with the help of my new buddy Paulie. I'll finish up the templates at home tonight and tomorrow I'll have time to start cutting out more tiles.
