I then match the background colors to your first decorative tile. Next I draw and paint the custom numbers you have chosen which are then fired in my kiln to 1800o F. On this first sample address tile plaque I have continued the bear and mountain design onto the following two tiles. I refer to this as a "continuous design". Finally the 3 tiles are caulked into a redwood frame with a waterproof flexible caulking . The redwood frame has a sealed masonite backing and hooks are included on the back for hanging.
I can also do names instead of numbers but I do in cursive handwriting not in stencil form so that the names are able to fit within the 2 tile space allotment. So therefore any names lettering will be substantially smaller in size but look very pretty. If name is short enough I can still use the larger sized stencil printing. (See example of cursive writing address plaque in thumbnail photo).
The tiles are each 6"x6" so that the Overall dimensions of the Address Plaque framed in Redwood is 8 3/4"X 20 3/4" X 1 1/2" It can be used outdoors in most climates. We live in a Winter snow area and the local address tiles here have survived nicely. Redwood will age gracefully with time.We put a light oil finish on it.
The thumbnail photos show other continuous design address plaque samples using different deco tiles as the first decorative tile. The custom handwritten "Ted and Vanessa" plaque is $180. I also offer Address Tile Plaques using only plain field one color tiles for the background tiles which are slightly less in cost under my ETSY shop's "Unique Gift Ideas" category.
