Before installation the layout was drawn onto the pool bottom. All seaweed stems were hand drawn and filled in with tile. After installation of the art, the background tile was installed and cut to fit around each piece. Location: Private Residence, Santa Ana, California. Custom art and murals by Agape Tile. A mural of this type is created today by creating the original artwork, scanning the art on a flat bed scanner and creating a ceramic decal that is high fired in a ceramic kiln. This process is UV Proof and Frostproof as the base tile is porcelain.
