I use glazes, those that have worked consistently well for me, and that I think fit in well with the Arts and Crafts home. I will list them here, starting with my favorite. Be aware that these colors may look different on your browser. To make sure that the color is what you want, I suggest that you order a glaze sample pack. New! Cottage Colors I have added some new glaze choices especially to use on the 4.25" tile.

I've also added a few more nuetral glazes just for Subway tile. Also I have some new rich colors for the Arabesques and Morroccan Fish scale tile

Glazes

Ocher

This is a complex gloss glaze. It has a rich butterscoth color, with subtle cream occuring where it is applied heavier.

Chocolate

This rich glaze makes me think of making fudge! Just like fudge, it can be satin or glossy. I have included it because it echoes the dark wood tones so often found in old Bungalows.

More About Glazes

Glazes are made of glass. I apply it to the tiles and fire them at a temperature of about 1875%. After this they are water proof. This is why they are a good choice for wet places. You can clean your tile the same way that you wash windows or mirrors. The slight browns that you see on the tiles are caused from the color of the terra-cotta clay showing through where it is thin. Because I apply the glaze by hand, ( brush), expect some variation. Order Craftsman, Cottage colors or Clissic Nuetrals.
