My sister is a potter and does these decorative tiles. She asked me to frame them so I chose to use quarter sawn white oak stained with a Mission Brown analine dye I got from Woodcraft and sealed them with one coat of satin poly. The frames are beveled from 1” at the outside to 3/4” at the tile.

I like them a lot – the slightly rounded corners lend themselves to the organic theme of the tiles. Your sister makes beautiful tiles, too!

I especially like the color of the aniline dye. Are you pleased with it? I’m getting ready to start experimenting with aniline dyes, I will definitely try the Mission Brown after seeing your frames…

Have your say...
