The tiles look really smart
But I was incorrectly sold Polished Protector to seal the tiles as they are crackle finish. The tiler was not happy, it took several washes and a lot of buffing to get the residue off the tiles.
The product is for polished stone or porcelain, the tile used were neither.
Your assistants in the Newhaven shop had been very helpful, apart from this. The tiler did phone the store who said the product should work but admitted it would not be the best one to use.

Good product but tricky to install
Astrea sage is an attractive tile but being crackle glaze it needs to be installed with care. Don't even attempt to install without a diamond cut table saw ! However, I didn't need to buy an expensive saw to complete the job.
The staff at Rustington Topps, where I collected my order, were extremely helpful and provided tips. Main one being that crackle glaze will attract staining without a sealant.
