We provide written instruction so that your workshop runs smoothly and your artistic tiles look beautiful! Feel free to call if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you!
Finished fired tiles can be mounted to plywood using liquid nails clear which is an indoor outdoor durable adhesive. Plywood can be pre cut to fit a specific area or you may choose to have groups of 12 or 16 mounted to a self framing plywood backing.
We can provide this service for $75 for 12 tiles and $90 for 16 tiles. We have the plywood cut, drill holes for hanging with our fun and funky wire (can be screwed onto wall directly if you desire). We prime and paint the front and sides of the plywood with acrylic indoor/outdoor black paint leaving an inch and a half around mounted tiles creating self framing border.

*If you do not buy tiles or glaze from us but are inquiring about using our kilns to fire your product the fee for firing is $4 per tile.
*Tiles must be delivered to the studio KILN READY, clean sides-free of glaze.
*You may not use the studio for additional painting of pottery after your event as this is a "to go" price. If you have the need to use the studio there will be a glaze/sitting fee of $10 per person per hour.
*Please be sure that all outlining and words or phrases on tiles are written in glaze. Pencil will burn off in the kiln. If you would like us to do this for you we can do so for $5 per tile (depending on detail) It is of course more cost effective for you to do this yourself.
*Tiles do need to be fired together to maximize kiln use so please return all finished tiles to us at the same time.
* DO NOT DIP TILES IN OVERGLAZE, we fire tiles on tile stackers and the bottoms and sides need to be free of glaze. It is very easy to brush on overglaze neatly so that you never need to sand the edges, or dip the top only. If you purchase your tiles and glaze from us we do all the overglazing for you.
*Our glazes are the best of the best in the market today! Vibrant colors, high gloss and durable overglaze, no comparison! We love what we do.
*Write students names on front in glaze for easy identification. If names are written on the back of the tile use pencil which will burn off to a light brown color.
*Do not use tape as a way of marking or masking, you will need to remove that prior to dropping at our studio for firing. (Just more work for you) We cannot fire tape in the kilns.
