Whats the difference in these two tiles?!?
OK, So both of these tiles came from habitat for humanity at different times.
I engraved a picture onto the one on the right and LOVED how it came out and was looking forward to making more. I went back and bought a box of what looked to be very similar tiles(one on the left) because they didn’t have any left of the first kind I had gotten. I have tried about eight different tiles from this box with different setting and pictures and haven’t gotten anywhere close to the same results.
I have even tried 5 different tiles that I got from Lowes and Home Depot with results no where close to the first.
I looked around online and found tiles that are made to be laser engraved but they are like $85 for 15 of them!!! I paid a buck for the one tile.
PLEASE someone tell me what kind of tile this is or what I am doing wrong.
I will say that the tile that worked good has more of a matte/semi gloss finish and doesn’t have that super gloss from a glaze or something on it.The one on the left was only able to be seen with the light at just the right angle. I tried to darken it with a sharpie but that only made it a black square. lol
