I have been a tile artist, master tile maker, for more than 25 years. I have written and produced five how-to books illustrating and explaining how you, too, can create custom art tiles of your own. NOTE: All my tile books are available at for $22.95. I offer them here at a reduced price.

This book 'CREATING CUSTOM ART TILES: SLIPS AND PRESSES,' shows you step by step how to create, carve and reproduce unique art tiles using two different methods--#1. Slips. Clay slips can be used in many ways to build and decorate your unique art tiles. #2. Presses. Commercially available presses are wonderful for creating art tiles--cookie presses, butter presses, soap presses, gingerbread presses. We'll cover them all.

You'll learn what works and what doesn't, where to shop, how to alter images and make them your own, and how to make a plaster mold of your creation, enabling you to recreate your unique tile hundreds of times, exactly the same.

All the custom tiles you see on the cover and inside of this book were created by me, using the methods described in the book. The book will also show you how to make a plaster mold of your newly-created prototype tile, so that you can produce as many identical tiles as you wish.

Filled with practical tips and bits of advice about tricks and short-cuts I've learned over the years, this book is 77 pages and 69 large (B&W) photos showing you every step of the way. Section one deals with the basics--materials, making a plaster mold of your new prototype tile, etc. Section two discusses in detail using clay slips in creative ways and Section three shows you how commercially available presses can be used with clay to create beautiful art tiles.

You should have at least a very basic knowledge of working with ceramic clay, clay modeling tools and kilns.
