Are you considering handpainted tiles for your current project? If so, you ought to check out our COLOR-IT Tool. It is a bit like a coloring book for grown ups...Whether you want to go bold and bright or soft and neutral, you can have any of our Handpainted Collections in the color palette of your choosing. You can pick up to 6 colors and you can pick between 3 different drylines.

Below we'll walk you through the 5 easy steps that will get you on your way to your very own customized handpainted tiles:

1. Choose your handpainted pattern:
With over 70 templates to choose from, you have a lot of options at your fingertips. Feel free to play with several patterns to see which one works best for you and your space.


2. Choose your Dryline Color:
The outline, known as the "Dryline" that creates the pattern on our handpainted tiles, you have the option of white, gray or black. The dryline plays a big part in the appearance of the tile, so you should definitely test each of the colors to see which you prefer.


3. Choose up to 6 Colors:
With over 80 glaze colors to choose from, this is where it gets really fun. Keep in mind that you can also opt to only use 2 or 3 colors as well. (We're also loving the simplicity of the two-toned handpainted look right now).
