Tile Making Video: How to Make Relief Decoration on Tile Using Shellac Resist

Handmade ceramic tile makes a great clay canvas on which to try out different surface decoration techniques. In today’s video, tile maker Frank Giorgini demonstrates a great shellac-resist technique to create relief decoration. The process is similar to using wax resist, only the shellac is quick drying and somewhat easier to control. Frank also shows us how you can take graphite rubbings of your relief decoration and then repeat the same imagery on subsequent tiles. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
