    That looks great Jared.

    Do you think you need to coat that with anything to protect it?

    We have been experimenting on painted tiles recently. Keep a look out for the post about this soon.

    Thanks Domenic. I have put a coat of clear acrylic on it after the burn. The clear acrylic I use (for a number of things) is the liquid acrylic floor polish, called Future in some places and now Pledge in Canada. It's a tough crystal clear finish that I also mix with acrylic craft paints to give them a bit of gloss and increased hardness.

    I'm going to be trying some of the painted tile soon myself. One thing I did find out from the site with all the painted tile etching was the ability to etch clear acrylic by spraying on a coat of flat white paint, doing the etch then cleaning off the paint. It worked very well but I've only done a small test so far. The small test looked great being edge lit by with LED light.

    Thanks for the info.

    We recently posted a project similar to what you describe with the clear acrylic:

    Interesting, I missed that blog post. I'll be looking for some of that peel paint.
