I painted this on a bisque (unglazed) tile. That should be the perfect surface for encaustic since it is porous, but I think it's almost too porous. It takes a lot of wax to build up a nice, smooth surface because it keeps sinking into the tile. I like the square shape and I have a couple of boxes of these left over from a previous craft project, so I'll probably use them for encaustic again. I think I will begin with a layer of encaustic gesso next time to control the permeability of the surface.
