Decorate a real clay tile using this ancient pottery technique found in Classical Italian and African art.
Sgraffito involves applying layers of coloured slip to an unfired tile and then scratching a pattern through to reveal the underlying clay colour. Typically this is black slip over white clay, but other colour combinations can be used to produce stunning work.
