Talavera Tile Wall Art and Furniture Stencils

The applications for hand painted Talavera tile are nearly endless. You might decide to tie your kitchen walls and floor together by using a border of Talavera tile around the back of the backsplash as well as peppering Talavera tiles at certain intersections of otherwise plain floor tile. While blue and white are the traditional colors for this kind of hand painted tile, our line of Talavera tile also includes yellow, red, green, and black so you can pair it with more color schemes. You may not be ready to try your hand at creating an authentic Talavera Tile, but you can certainly recreate the look with the help of stencils and bold and bright paint colors.
