Mineral Photo Custom Feature Tiles - unique tiles with a digital image of Sue's Mineral Photos. My process works on most tile surfaces. I'm currently working with subway tiles (10cm x 20cm) which look great with Sue's photos, as she took the photos with a 'landscape' orientation. I can also work with other sizes up to 30cm x 30cm and possibly larger.
If you want to use another size tile not listed here, that's fine, as long as they are readily available I am happy to do this. You would need to click on 'Contact Us' to let me know what size you want, and I will add that size to the listing so you can place your order :-)
This particular photo depicts a magnified view (under crossed polars) of radiating epidote blades set within quartz altered by feldspar laths. Rock thin section viewed at a thickness of 0.03mm (30µm).
The process I use to customise the tiles involves a manual process to place each image on the tile using a specialised photographic paper, or vinyl. The image is then either enamelled and baked or sprayed to fix the image and ink on the tile, and sealed using a commercial grade epoxy resin to achieve a permanent UV stable, high gloss finish. This is a fairly labour-intensive and time-consuming process to produce each tile, but the result is worth it as the tiles look spectacular. The main credit goes to Sue's beautiful photos obviously.
For Mineral Photo custom tiles I supply the artwork and provide the finished tiles. If you want to use a specific type or brand of tile for your order, please let me know, however my costs per tile are calculated on 'standard' white ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles, marble or tumbled travertine all work well with my process.
This photo is also available as a digital print on canvas and fine art paper under 'Mineral Photo Prints', starting at $16.10 for a 21cm x 30cm (A4) fine art paper print.
Please take into account when ordering that I hand-design, paint and finish each tile, and each step in the process takes time. If you have tight time frames I can work with you to try and achieve that. Just place a note during the order process to let me know, and/or click on 'Contact Us' so I can identify your order.
I use a courier delivery service, which means delivery to your door. This charge is at cost, no additional charges added. If I can pack your order so that the delivery charge is less than shown when you place your order, I will let you know and arrange with you to refund the difference :-)
There is no minimum order quantity, if you would like to order just one tile to see if they will work for you, that's quite ok, just select quantity '1' for the size you require and I will make a single tile for you at the price and shipping cost indicated.
If you are ordering a larger quantity of tiles, I am happy to discuss a discount, just email me before you place your order.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
