After you’ve checked out our site, we’d love for you to come by and see the daily goins’ ons at our quirky handmade tile studio in the sticks of southern New Hampshire. If goofy dogs, cool tile, and an eclectic group of former interior designers, high end tile sales consultants, and art school dropouts having fun making tile, and often times experimenting with all things awesome is your thing, then our blog will be right up your alley. Even if its not, it’s a fun way to look into the magical world of handmade tile.


Installing A Custom Fairy Mural - New Tile Pieces!

At Wet Dog Tile we have all the fun of creating the borders and murals we make, but not so often are we able to have the pleasure of grouting installing them ourselves.

For the past couple months we have been taking bits and pieces of time to create a custom mural to showcase our new fairy pieces we'll be introducing to our line in the near future! Not only did we create it, but we were able to grout and install it ourselves as well. 

Since we have stepped up our social media game, we thought "Why not make a fun instructional video?", so we did! The video is currently being edited but in the meantime we thought we'd show our fans and followers a few stills from the video...

In this shot you're able to see an artist of ours laying the first section of the mural. Our murals are cut up into interlocking sections that will all blend together once everything is complete!

More sections are put in place, as well as tiny nails to keep the mesh from sagging out of position before drying.

Final touches are done to positioning before letting it dry. Once dry, we'll be able to start the grouting process!

We know these stills don't give a lot away - that's the point! We're very excited to finish and share the video with everyone and we hope you are too. We will keep everyone updated and the video will be out before you know it! Have a great day!
