The theme is Bring Your Own Beverage. My Coke and Coffee tile attempts failed miserably, so I went a bit off the grid and tried using the juice from a jar of Maraschino Cherries. It looked cool enough on the blank tile. A nice curving arc that invited an organic approach.
Well things went well enough until the scanning portion of the process arrived. That was a nightmare. The scanner that I have been using for my blog was not up to the task. It could not pick up the Maraschino coloration. I had to switch over to my industrial grade Epson flatbed scanner, and that system fought me tooth and nail before it cooperated. It was able to reach the elusive pinkness of the Maraschino, but also picked up every other blemish and smudge as well. For a simple looking Tile, this was one tough ordeal to undertake. I'll remember this one.
Due to the scanning issues with this Tile, the scan of just the stain was a total loss, just a white tile. Thus I only have the finish tile to upload.
