Painted Tile Coasters

Client : Pernod Ricard/Samballab Year : 2013

You know you are in trouble when there’s 120 tiles with the size of 30x30cm for you to paint in 7 days. We managed to finish in time and also recorded 9 video tutorials. How about that? There’s a total of 8 designs for this set of door gifts for Martell Pure Gourmet.

Did you know that ceramic paint can also be used on glass? Well, some of them can be used. However, all ceramic products have to be baked in the oven for 45 minutes to cure the paint. Then the ceramic will be dishwasher proof and scratch proof.

If you are interested in learning how to paint ceramic, you can check out our video tutorials at youtube or vimeo. The key is to use water to your advantage. The little tube you see in the photo are used for line work.

So how did we get to finish all these in 7 days? Instead of transferring the design to the tile one by one with graphite, we memorized the design and painted it on the spot. To ensure that each tile looks the same, we have a stencil guide to let us know the borders of the design.

The Martell logo is printed on the tile and finished with a top coat. Do let us know if you need help with printing on tiles, metals or plastic.

Some of the designs are simple yet charming, we enjoyed doing this job and have definitely improved our art skills! This set of tiles are for the VIPs and media that attend the Martell Pure Gourmet event in Penang, March 21st. Drop us a comment if you received one of them! We love to hear from you.
