        Mexican Tile Patterns

        Mexico is the largest world production center and exprter of talavera tile patterns. Production facilities are located in Dolores Hidalgo and Puebla. Mexican Tiles with patterns are handmade of three different clays from state of Guanjuato and San Luis Potosi. Once the clay is mixed and dry enough it is hand cut in form of the tiles. Raw clay tiles have red terra cotta color. Then the talavera tiles are covered with the background color. Afterwords, those rustic tiles are hand painted with Mexican patterns including classic colonial, Spanish, folk art, hacienda, country and other traditional, and rustic designs.

        Ceramic Tiles with Mexican Patterns

        It takes Mexican pattern tiles eight hours to fire in industrial ovens to create the glaze. Mexican talavera tile surface is not covered with any additional material, it is the paint itself having shiny crust due to baking in high temperature. Mexican ceramic tiles are not entirely flat and as soon as installed on kitchen bathroom wall, counter or backsplash they develop small blaze cracks making the patterns antique looking. To speed up the crazing process you can place them in the water for a while and then dry on the sun. If you want to make the crackles more visible use darker grout. To diminish it apply cement with the tile predominant color. If you are looking for ceramic tiles without the rustic look, ceramics from Mexico are not for you. Look instead for other type of discounted tiles from Mexico Rustica House online store has on offer.
