Engraving Tumbled Marble For Home Installation



These 4" x 4" tumbled marble tiles were engraved for installation in our home. As you can see, the tumbled marble engraves white, instead of dark, because of its chalky texture.


Christy wanted to install engraved tiles when they remodeled. I engraved western brands for Trace's shower on 6" x 6" tiles and 4" x 4" tiles were engraved at a 45 degree angle, using the words Faith, Hope & Love around her bathtub. She also installed an engraved 12" x 12" tile using artwork from her existing kitchen cabinets and "The Hart Home", which was used over her stove-top.


This obviously requires "pre-planning" but adds a unique 'personal touch' to a home.
