Getting Started: Start by choosing a smooth, dry surface to make ceramic tiles. The area should be away from any source of moisture, heat, or sudden movements. Kneading Clay: The basic constituent of all ceramic tiles is clay. You need to knead a handful of polymer clay. This kind of clay is more durable (moisture_tolerant) than other cheaper varieties of clays. Wet the clay with water and start kneading it. Knead the clay until the entire clay_mix seems soft and devoid of any lumps.
Rolling and Cutting Kneaded Clay: To make the basic frame of the ceramic tile, you need to create equal_sized pieces from the kneaded clay. Roll_out small pieces of clay, using the pin. Ensure that the rolled_out clay is at least 0ሑ_inches thick. Using a knife, cut the rolled_out clay in the required shape. The square shape is the easiest to carve and the most common shape for ceramic tiles. If you aren't sure about the uniformity of the squared clay pieces, use a ruler to measure each end.
