Hand Dipping

Hand dipping involves dipping tiles face down into a ceramic glaze, for a period of time by hand. When the tile is removed subtle differences in depth of the glaze, this gives each tile a unique characteristic of different shades across the surface.

 We use special formulated glazes, which are very close to the original recipes used in the Victorian era. Hand dipping into this type of glaze gives tiles a great depth of colour and a near exact reproduction of a Victorian tile.

We offer a colour matching service that involves us testing glaze formula’s to find the one that best matches your sample. This service is ideal for restoration work especially when using existing tiles with the new to ensure a perfect match.
