Swan Women Tiles

Enjoying playing around over the winter, keeping her hand in making silicone moulds of clay originals and casting in Jesmonite, Meg found herself making bass-relief tiles on her continuing theme of Swan Women.

It was very tempting to leave the tiles self-coloured to show the contours to their best advantage and avoid making them into comic strip characters, but they looked unfinished. The solution was to use several layers of thin washes of acrylic paint, combined with interference or opalescent paints.

Meg will make a run of copies of the tiles which are 6″/15 cms square and approximately .4″/1cm deep. Copies can be ordered via the contact page.
