The focal point of any kitchen is a beautiful countertop. Ceramic tile is perhaps the most suitable option for kitchen countertops. Ceramic tile is also ideal to give an upscale as well as artistic appearance to countertops. In addition, ceramic tile countertops form smart alternatives to kitchen remodeling and cabinet re-facing projects. Ceramic tile countertops are now available in a range of colors, textures, patterns, and shapes. Ceramic tile countertops are resistant to heat, scratch, and stain. Cost-effectiveness, durability, and versatility are their other advantages. Usually, ceramic tiles can be installed on all types of countertops like those made of plywood, cement, and lightweight aggregates. But, the main thing is the application of the right backing under the tiles. The selection of sink type is also important. Usually, sinks selected for ceramic tile countertops are 'tile in' and 'self rimming' types. The tile in type sink is generally set below the tile surface, and the other type is set on the top of the tile. Typically, the size of ceramic tile countertop ranges from one square inch to six square inches. Today, trim tiles are available to cove backsplashes and front edge treatments.
The first step in the process of hand painting is to decide the theme of the painting. Then, make rough sketches on a graph paper of the exact size. Before hand painting tiles, clean them thoroughly with soapy water and allow them to dry. Next, mix the paint with oil and turpentine. Brush and palette knife can be used to smear and blend colors. When the hand painting process is complete, it is necessary to heat the glazes between 1350 degrees and 1500 degrees Fahrenheit, inside a kiln. Mostly, hand painted ceramic tiles are durable and can be used for pool installation and other outdoor purposes. A recent addition to the ceramic tile market is water-proof hand painted tiles. Custom made, hand painted ceramic tiles are also available. At present, there are numerous retailers as well as manufacturers specializing in hand painted ceramic tiles.
