Toning down glazed border

SanAntonioRoseTooOctober 7, 2005

I would really appreciate help with this problem. I had a tile scene installed as a backsplash in my newly remodeled kitchen and love it but....I ordered a rope like trim in a forest green with a "wiped down" or muted look but I got a highly glazed finish which is not what I wanted. This was the 2nd order (sent the first one back - wayyy to dark) So now the color is right but it is too bright and shiny and just not what I wanted. I went ahead and had it installed but would love to do something. Can I tone it down somehow? I wanted a sort of washed out, I guess dull finish. Thanks so much.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It is too bad that you installed it. If you just had the tile, you could have gotten someone with a kiln to refire it for you.

As a craft person, I would take a couple of extra pieces of the tile and experiment with some matte paint on finishes from Michaels. Good luck.
