- With water or tempera colours you can design Roman bathing shoes quickly and easily.
- Whether colourful or simple, every mosaic is guaranteed to be an eye-catcher. At the same time, your students experience a piece of history for themselves.
- The individual stones of the mosaic tile are very well recognizable and the joints between the mosaic stones are deepened as with the original mosaics. So your work will succeed safely. And if your work of art doesn't work out like this, you can easily clean the mosaic tile with water and paint it again.
Tile painting as easy as never before!
The technique is very simple. All you and your little artists need are water or tempera paints. And this is how you proceed:
- Prime the complete mosaic tile with a background colour of your choice. You can choose the colour in which the joints are to be held.
- Simply spread with plenty of water over the whole mosaic tile.
- After a short drying time (approx. 5-10 minutes), paint the individual stones of the pattern individually with the colours of your choice.
Do not stir the colour so liquid anymore, so that the background colour of the mosaic tile can be covered. Colourful or simple colours - there are no limits to your imagination!
Let it dry and your own antique mosaic tile is ready!
