My favorite is the center one. I think the details stand out more.

In this particular frame, I like the green bronze patina, as it stands out more than the other two, having more contrast.

I think the others might look better in a lighter finished, QS oak frame? From the pictures, these frames are a bit too dark for my tastes with the other two tiles.

Once again you have wonderful work. All of them are beautiful, but my favorite one is the green bronze patina.

I think the green bronze patina jumps out of the frame the best. But I also like the 3rd one a lot.

I have to agree with Pat, it also depends on the rest of the room. JIM

The bottom example, Iron Oxide Patina is first choice and the Green Bronze Patina second each have a wonderful contrast to the warm frame and both of those tiles no loner have to be a secondary read to the dark shadow tone around the tile which is why the stained and waxed is weakest and third on my list.

You have the process down to a science. I realy like the options you have availabe to you with hydrastone. Your customer would have to make their decision based on their home interior.
