How do we elaborate our decorative high relief tiles? The process involves a unique painting technique and it is more complex than producing normal Talavera tiles. Our experienced local artisans use an ancient relief technique that involves creating raised, three-dimensional elements that remain attached to a two-dimensional background of the same material, resulting in sculpted motifs that are raised from the surface. The craftsman, instead of using a traditional brash, is squeezing a small bottle with paint pouring it on the tile surface which was earlier designed with a hand drawing. Applying various colors the painter is leaving a substantial amount of paint, elevating particular elements from the background of the design. Once ceramic tiles are fired, the surface becomes very hard and the tile pattern can be easily distinguished not only by colors but especially by the raised relief pattern. The effect is mesmerizing and you can discover the whole collection of decorative high relief tiles at our online store.The application ideas are endless from adding kitchen ceramic tiles to your kitchen backsplash to decorating your doorway with Mexican, colorful tiles.
