Creative Tile’s Acuarela combines a gently undulating surface with exquisitely beautiful glazes. The opaque Cloud color takes advantage of the undulation adding a textural element that makes it stand out from other white wall tile. The translucent glazes of the other colors create movement on each piece and variation from piece to piece. The carefully designed structure allows the glazes to pool which creates movement and accentuates their beauty. The final look is like a handmade tile, yet the straight edges allow for a smaller grout joint and easier installation.
Acuarela is intended for interior walls.
Expect shade variation between field and trim.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO WORK WITH THE LAYOUT, MIXING PIECES WITHIN EACH CARTON AND PULLING FROM SEVERAL CARTONS, TO GET THE PROPER BLEND DURING INSTALLATION.
The Acuarela series is a shaded product with variation within each production and from production to production. Due to the different production techniques and times, expect variation in size and color between field and trim. The variation can be accentuated by the shape of the trim pieces as the glaze pools differently on the curved surfaces. Glossy glazes can be susceptible to scratching, so care should be taken with handling and installation.
Acuarela is intended for interior walls. If installing with a cement-based adhesive, it is recommended to use a flexible setting material. All substrates should be properly reinforced to be sure there is no movement. Wood studs need to be dry and properly braced with a minimum depth of 3-1/2”. For mortar installations, the mortar bed has to be cured (less than 2% humidity) and has to have proper reinforcing.
Most manufacturers recommend a maximum offset of one-third (1/3) of the length of the tile on all large format tiles when setting a running bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles, ANSI A 108.2 Section 4.3.8. The minimum recommended grout joint is 2 mm.
