Bespoke border tile stencil engraving.

We coated 40 off 200 x 50 mm plain white glazed border tiles with a self adhesive masking film and then engraved a bespoke image through the film to produce a stencil. The stencilled tiles were then hand coloured with porcelain paints (porcelaine 150), the masking film was removed and the tiles baked to set the paint.

The advantage of this method is that the laser roughens the tile glazing which allows the paint to adhere well and the paint does not bleed under the edges of the stencil producing a crisp image.

Light Switches

Bespoke light switch decoration and identification pictograms.

We engraved numerous new light switches with a bespoke border image and identification pictograms.
The engravings were then filled with black cellulose paint. This produces a well defined and long lasting image which will not wear with use.


Antique-style engraved map.

We were provided with an image of a sheet from the Ordnance Survey map from 1899. The map was optimised and cropped to the required area using image manipulation software before being engraved onto brass/black acrylic engraving laminate. The finished product was mounted in a photograph frame for wall mounting. This gave a superbly detailed map with an antique feel.
