Like many others here, I’ve been having a lot of fun with the white ceramic tiles lately. The Star Wars tie fighter tile that was posted by another user really got me wanting to engrave on these some more. Did a few themed tiles from Star Wars, Mad Max, Dr Who, Dragonlance and also a few attempts at photo engraves, lots of lessons learned from them and many more to master.
My youngest son is a big fan of the Polish Winged Hussars and had asked me if I could do a tile with the Hussars on them. I figured why not! He has this image as his wallpaper on his computer so figured it would work pretty good on a tile. I might re-do the tile to remove some of the extra white space above and below the image. I had some ideas that I was going to do in that space but changed my mind about it.
The tile was fine and all but it needed a simple little frame to help it stand on it’s own. I whipped up this quick little frame for it. I shouldn’t have rounded the window cut, would have looked better with it just being square. When I brought it in from the garage, the wife said “Oh, look, like a little TV!”. not at all what I was going for!
Pic from the top and side. It stands well on it’s own and you could likely hang it on a wall as the rear has a bit of an inset between the border and backing. No glue on the frame other than some liquid nails to hold the tile to the backing piece of wood.
I’ll probably re-do this piece for my son, I can totally make it better. I’m gonna take this one for myself though!
