Air well floor tiles.

Art Friend has a series of paper punches to punch out your own paper stencils. Most are quite small and simple in design but recently arrived in stock are these 22 mm square ones. Perfect for the air well floor tiles. The stencil is punched into sticky labels which are then stuck onto the blank tile. Acrylic paint was used to create the pattern on the tile. Note: punch the stencil out with the backing paper towards the punch, otherwise the bits of paper stick to the punch which in turn sticks in the die. The tiles were made in the same way as the larger terracotta floor tiles but using white air drying modelling clay.
