I must admit most days I feel like this snail and totally relate to the saying, "I'm not slow, I'm just trying to savor the journey."
These travertine tiles (measuring 4 x 4) have been stamped and hand painted in a whimsical trio of mushrooms design with a pink snail savoring the journey. The colors I used in this design are soft pink, tan and sage green. The above saying is added in black.
These are travertine tiles from Turkey. I like to use this specific type of travertine tile (ravini beige) because of their smooth texture with only minimal cracks and dents (mainly around the edges). They are strong and sturdy tiles that will last a lifetime. I hand stamp and hand paint each design. I bake the tiles in the oven to heat set in the design so the design can get wet but not smudge. I don't use any kind of chemical sealer because I want these tile coasters to be absorbent. I hand stamp the bottom with my name and add felt pads.
I do keep an inventory of my designs on hand, but many are made to order at the time you order. The photo seen in the listing is a representation of the final product. I paint the designs the same (as close as possible) and tiles do vary with their cracks and dents.
*these coasters are absorbent, the design is heat set in so the painted design will not smudge when wet will absorb moisture from your glass or cup.
*Each tile has 4 felt pads on the bottom so they will not scratch table top finishes.
*there will be some tiles with natural cracks and chips (mainly around the edges) but not enough to affect them being used as sturdy coasters.
*These coasters are not dishwasher safe and can be cleaned with a damp towel.
*these are travertine tiles from Turkey.
*personalization (names, initials, dates) is available for any of the designs.
*Cup is not included! :-)
Add these hand painted tile coasters to your next party table setting for a special look and have the guests keep their tile coasters as a special party favor. 2009-2015 Copyright My Little Chickadee Creations
