This Talavera clay tile is hand-painted in a washed terracotta color, which means that the tile is first painted in a white background and later on in a second step the terracotta glaze is applied. This tile can be used as a field piece in a decorative wall as shown in the second picture. All of our Mexican tiles background is painted in "Mexican white", which is an off white, creamy color.
All of our Talavera tiles have a heavily hand-made process involved; as such, imperfections are expected. Color variations are to be expected from batch to batch. What you see on your screen might not be exactly what you will get, this is mostly due to several factors, among others: lighting when the picture was taken, lighting in your own monitor, but mostly changes in the glazes used between batches. All these factors are beyond our control. If in doubt, we recommend you to order a sample before committing to a bigger order. This tile has limited outdoors use, we don't recommend its use on temperatures under 40 degrees. It is not frost-proof. It is not suitable for inside pools as the chemicals involved on water cleaning will destroy the clay.
