Atomic Trivet Using Rub-On Transfers
The original tile on this trivet had a San Francisco street scene on it but it broke when my friend's toddler got a hold of it. I was left with an empty metal frame, but not to worry. I went to my local hardware store and bought a plain white ceramic square tile.
When I took the tile home, I swiped the surface clean using a cotton square soaked with rubbing alcohol. Then I applied the transfers and sealed the design my coating the entire surface with a clear varnish.
These transfers can be put on metal, tile, ceramic, glass, wood, and plastic. They cannot be put on items that will get wet or be washed. These transfers are best left for decorative pieces.
