The process of hand painted tiles is both a science and an art. Our latest video,Making Hand Painted Tile, shows how artisans create hand painted decorative tiles. The pattern is applied to each tile and then the glaze applied one color at a time before firing. The process requires both patience and skill. You can easily appreciate the time it takes to just apply the glaze to the pattern!
