Do you have to re seal the tiles periodically?
Our advice: Yes, generally every few years or so. You will notice a dulling on the tiles which will indicate they require resealing.
I have just bought these for my kitchen. How long do you have to leave sealer on before grouting.
Our advice: Typically we advise 24 hours for the sealer to permeate into the cracks within the glaze and then wipe the excess off.
Are you able to advise what is the best way to apply the treatment to these tiles? Thank you
Our advice: The best way to apply the sealer would be to use a paintbrush.
Will these tiles let water through in your shower if not sealed?
Our advice: As the glaze is cracked, if not sealed, this will allow water to absorbed through the tile.
I am thinking of lead white and mint tiles. What is best way to work out a random pattern?
Our advice: To work out a combination of different colours using the Craquele tiles, we would recommend either splitting the measurement three equal ways or one half the leading colour and then sharing the other half equally between the remaining colours.
