Photo-ceramics is a process that allows transferring photographs onto ceramic tiles through a special printing technique, creating a permanent image that is resistant to weathering, often used for memorials or funerary monuments. .
The creation of photo-ceramics begins with selecting a high-quality photograph, which is then printed onto a special paper sheet and manually transferred onto the ceramic. The process concludes with a high-temperature firing, which permanently fixes the image onto the surface.
Photo-ceramics are designed to be extremely durable, withstanding adverse weather conditions, UV rays, and other external factors for decades without fading or deteriorating.
Choose a photo with high resolution and good lighting that best represents the subject. Clear and well-defined images yield better results once transferred onto the ceramic.
Initially, the surface intended for installation is cleaned. Then, silicone or adhesive is applied to the back of the photo-ceramic, ensuring it is evenly distributed for optimal adhesion. After carefully placing the photo-ceramic on the surface, the silicone is left to dry for the necessary time. For best results, trust a professional like a marble worker.
Photo-ceramics can be cleaned with a soft cloth and clean water or with non-abrasive detergents to remove dirt without damaging the image.
