What is Tole Painting?


Tole painting

  • The word tole comes from the French word for tin and was originally practiced in the 18th century by German immigrants in the New England area. There was also a similar art form emerging at the same time and practiced by Scandinavian immigrants. While the German immigrants tended to concentrate on metal and tin items, the Scandinavian practice tended to focus on wooden objects. Regardless of your heritage, tole painting can be done on many things and enjoyed by anybody.
