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.
How to Protect Ceramic Tile From Hard Water Stains: Lime, calcium and other mineral in water cause hard water stains on ceramic tile. The minerals are left behind after the water dries and result in streaks or spots. These spots can appear light at first but they eventually become more pronounced as the mineral layer builds up. Once dry, the stains become hard and won't easily wipe from the ceramic tiles. Preventing the stains saves you the effort of a deep cleaning later and keeps the ceramic looking shiny and clean.
