How to Use the Glaze List 

Glaze names are listed alphabetically within each finish group: Matte, Gloss, Satin, and Unglazed Bisque.  A glaze chip can be purchased by selecting the "Order Glaze Chip" button above the image.  For each glaze, we show an image of random glaze chips.  Additionally, the rated color variation or "V Rating" is listed to help you understand the expected color variation. The V Rating is listed in parenthesis with one of the following values: (V1), (V2), (V3), or (V4).  Finally, a Pantone color code, if available, is shown after the color variation rating to assist with color and design choices primarily with commercial projects.

Explanation of Glaze Variation

Ceramic and porcelain tiles will exhibit color variation between dye lots, production runs, and who is applying the glaze.  Glaze variation provides a more natural look to an installation because of the differences in color and saturation.  The color variation also provides more interest and character.  The help consumers and designers understand the amount of variation to expect, the CTDA (Ceramic Tile Distributors Association) grouped variation into four (4) categories.  You should know the V rating of your tile and make sure you are comfortable with the range of color and variation.  Here are the descriptions of the variations and what to expect.

V1 = Uniform Appearance. It will be hard to notice variation or differences in color from the same production run of V1 tiles. Typically these glazes are found on commercially manufactured tiles.  At Avente Tile you won't any tiles rates as with uniform appearance or V1 because we used natural pigments and hand apply our glazes. 

V2 = Slight Variation. You will spot slightly noticeable variation in color or texture for tiles in the group.  However, generally the tiles will be very similar in color. Shade, tone or saturation will vary slightly.

V3 = Moderate Variation.  Tiles with moderate variation will have several colors applied and each color will be present on any tile.  However, the amount of color will vary significantly from tile to tile.  For instance, once piece might have 60% green and 40% blue; the next piece 90% blue and 10% green.  Often these multi-colored glazes are called layered glazes.  

V4 = Substantial Variation. Look for random color differences from tile to tile for V4 classified tiles. is complete variation. One tile may have a completely different color or texture from the other tiles. Therefore, the final installation is unique from any other.  This variation is common in blends that use randomly placed tiles from a variety of glazes or finishes.

Pantone Color Codes

Some of our glazes will have a Pantone color code. When available, it will be listed after the glaze variation.  The Pantone color will generally be a three or four digit number followed with a single letter.  For instance, Cherry Red shows 202c as Pantone match. Our Malibu Gloss Tomato glaze lists 7619c as a Pantone match.  The Pantone colors are helpful in finding glazes for identified color schemes that are primarily used in commercial projects.

Ordering Glaze Chips

The only way to get a true representation of the color is to get a glaze chip.  We try to stock all of the glazes in 3" x 3" color chips.  Glaze chips are available for $2 per glaze chip plus shipping.  It's best to get one or two glaze chips that are darker and  one or two that are lighter (less saturated) than the selected color.  This allows you to see the range of colors and provides the best way to work with the existing glaze palette.
