Tumbled Stone Murals & Backsplashes
Our beautiful murals start with artist Linda Paul's original paintings which are recreated with permanent pigmented inks directly onto natural tumbled marble stone tile.
Once the artwork is on the marble, it is sealed with several coats of a 2 part epoxy custom sealer. Our tiles are designed for indoor use as backsplashes, behind kitchen stove tops and sinks, and in bathrooms. They are durable and easy to clean.
The murals are created in the artist's Colorado Studio. These are the highest quality and most beautiful tile murals on the market! The murals are shipped as individual tiles.
We use natural marble tumbled stone that has slightly rounded edges and corners. It is called tumbled because it occasionally has a little corner that has been tumbled away to give it a bit of an old world look

Linda's Tips on how to pick the right size and shape backsplash mural for your space
Shape: The mural should be the same shape and orientation as your space. If your space is long and thin, you mural should be long and thin If your space is vertically oriented your mural should be the same orientation. Don't put a horizontal mural into a vertically oriented space.
The picture to the left demonstrates this. The overall shape of the space and the mural is long and thin so it looks balanced and beautiful

How to pick a size for your mural
The ideal size of the mural is da Vinci proportions which means the mural should take up four fifths of the space.
It also look good to fill the space
completely. With murals you can never
be too big, it does not look good if the mural is too small.
To help with sizing, you can cut out a piece of paper to the size you think the mural should be, tape it to the wall, then stand back and see if you like the ways it fits the space.
You can use blue painter's tape to simulate

Why should you buy our murals instead of others? These are artist created, incredibly high quality works of art. All our murals are created individually for you and we guarantee that you will be thrilled. We use only colorfast, permanent pigments and a sealer so beautiful (and tough) you won't even know its there . Our quality is Tiffany not Kmart! Our murals are not dye sublimation, you should never buy a dye sublimation mural. It will fade very quickly. You should only buy murals that are created with pigmented inks or ceramic glazes and are UV cured or kiln fired and sealed.
