The painted tiles, such as the floral designs can be done in any combination of underglaze (UG) colors on the design and another UG in the recesses. Black in the recesses gives an overall off white to grey tone with black speckling to the background, dark brown gives an overall off white to ivory with brown speckling, they are then finished in a clear gloss glaze.
(UG) Under glaze colors are generally applied to the whole tile, then wiped off leaving color in the recesses and the off white to ivory of the clay color on the raised parts of the design, they are then finished in a clear gloss glaze. This gives a very contrasting effect with most colors and makes the carvings stand out. Underglaze colors can be applied lighter, darker and mixed to produce custom colors to compliment your color scheme. They are also the colors used on the hand painted tiles.
Plain tiles done in UG colors are off white with with speckles of color as shown in the samples. UG colors are only available in high gloss.
(GL) Glaze colors are a one color translucent or semi translucent gloss glaze that is applied over the whole tile. The glaze pools in the recesses giving a more subtle contrast of dark and light. GL colors are only available in a high gloss unless they say matte GL.
Matte (GL) glazes are opaque with a soft matte finish and generally have varying amounts of speckling. Only the colors that say matte are available in a matte finish.
Regardless of color and decorating style, tiles will vary one from another.
Minor variations are an inherent part of handmade tiles that
makes them beautifully unique and interesting.
