      Do you mean how to do the designs in the slip used to color the face of the tile when it is fired? Or print them.

      Printing can be done as a dye-sub process or as a UV flatbed process.

      HOWEVER
      There are certain wearability and food safety issues you need to know about.
      -Dye sub or printed tiles should not be used outdoors. There have been too many reports of almost immediate fading and no cases of tiles lasting much more than 5 years without significant fading.
      -They can't be used for flooring or high traffic areas like hallway walls.
      -Cleansers that can scratch the surface are bad for printed tiles.
      -Exposure to heat and grease aren't good for them either.
      -Some inks may contain chemicals you don't want to have in contact with food.

      Dye sub is more common. UV flatbed is more of a short term usage.

              Texture overlay. I did something similar recently using an image of textured paper, put it on the top layer, and played with the opacity/blending settings until it looked good. If you want to get more...

              I like how you handled the original brief.

              As for the simpler ones, they are nice enough designs and very nice illustrations, but the overall style of the original branding would be MUCH...
