- Cut paper to the size you want for your tiles. I cut mine about 1/2″ smaller than the tile, as I wanted a nice white border around the outside of the paper.
- Place modge podge (I did this with my finders, but you can also use a brush) on the first tile. Spread the modge podge around, and place the paper on top of the modge podge. Wait until you complete step 4 before moving onto your next tile; modge podge dries very quickly, and you don’t want to be left with half solidified modge podge chunks on all your tiles.
- Use your finger or a smooth object (such as a ruler) to push out the bubbles created by the modge podge.
- Place modge podge on top of the paper, and spread it over the paper and down the sides of the tile.
- Repeat steps 2-4 for your remaining tiles.
- Repeat steps 2-4, for each tile, 4 (four!) additional times. This will ensure that wear and tear does not remove the paper. My first tiles lasted 2 years before the paper started ripping — I only used 2 coats of modge podge. Wait until the modge podge dries beforey ou start the next modge podge layer — it is dry when you cannot see the white modge podge (approximately 30 minutes).
- After all 5 modge podge coats are complete, wait 2 days before using the tiles or adding your optional acrylic sealant/spray adhesive. If you use the sealant/spray, be sure to read the instructions on the sealant, as most sprays are extremely flammable and require significant ventillation. Spray a thin layer on each tile, wait 2 hours (or however long your spray indicates), and enjoy your gorgeous new tiles!
