Hand painted ceramic tiles is specially noted for their unmatched beauty, and they come in a myriad of shades and colors. Everything from abstract and geometric designs to images of historic events and ancient designs such as cave art paintings, Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Mayan stone carvings are adopted as themes for hand painting ceramic tiles. Hand painting of ceramic tiles has also now evolved as a hobby, as it gives a skilled artist the full freedom to express his imagination. Plain, shiny, and white glazed ceramic tiles and thin tiles are most suitable for hand painting. The media used for hand painting ceramic tiles generally depend on the plans and techniques employed. Some of the most commonly used materials and tools for hand painting ceramic tiles are China paints (overglaze colors) made from oxides of several metals, lavender oil, brushes, palette knife, fine calligraphy pen, soft pencil for glass, and turpentine.
If the floor you're covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you'll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards. The floor in which you'll install your ceramic tile flooring must be as even as possible. If it's not, you'll have to even it out first. Repair all holes and cracks in the floor and clean it thoroughly prior to beginning work. Once the floor is prepared and dried, you can start laying your ceramic tile flooring. It is best to lay the tile in pre-separated sections. Divide the floor into four sections. You can use grout as a line separator. Then, for each section, use a notched trowel to spread the mortar. Hold the trowel at a 45 degree angle so that it creates notches in the spread. This enables better holding when you set in the tile.
