Video: Making an Encaustic Cement Tile
Video showing one of our encaustic tiles being made. The tiles are handmade in a mould, using natural pigments mixed into a mixture of marble dust, sand and cement. After being hydraulically pressed, the tiles are simply dried in fresh air for 28 days. Very pretty!
The moulds for some 150 patterns are hung along the workshop wall. Each mould is made up of many smallshapes which are welded together.
