Porcelain Catalina Designs Tiles

If you are looking for a full line to meet pool or fountain needs, this is it!

Using a centuries-old technique from Europe and originally from the Middle East, a design of lines is applied by screen to a pre-glazed body. The oily substance used, called wax resist, allows for a thick layer of glaze to be applied between the lines by rubber syringe without crossing the lines of the design. Upon firing, a high relief and perfectly symmetrical design remains.
