Porcelain and its Qualities
MyBluePalette uses only the best materials to create custom porcelain house signs.
Porcelain is highly resistant to thermal extremes, is water-repellent and will not break due to very high or low, below freezing temperatures.
Therefore, all my plaques are perfectly suitable for outdoor use.
The colors used to decorate the plaque go through a fixing phase by being fired inside a professional kiln at a temperature around 1400°F. As a result, this will leave the colors non-fading and resistant to sunshine, snow, extreme cold and weathering distress in general.
Shapes and Sizes
All of my custom porcelain signs are usually painted using three different kinds of plaques: oval, round or rectangular.
Oval signs are the most popular choice for their elegant shape right from the start.
Round plaques are more often used to create decorated house numbers or street number signs. They look very good even in smaller sizes and still allow plenty of detail.
Rectangular plaques are the optimal option to recreate extended landscapes. They resemble a painter’s canvas. So, if you would like to have an extended horizon in the background of your family name, you may want to consider this particular type of plaque.
I can use square tiles or porcelain plaques in other shapes on request. Just ask me about it!
