Staining terracotta floor tiles

Asked by Pete from Leeds: Hi, is there a particular product for staining teracotta tiles before sealing? I'd like a deeper colour rather than just using the sealer to bring the natural colour out.

TileProf says: Hi Pete, Coffee might be worth a try, mix it 1 parts to 5 with warm water give it a good stir and pour it over the Clay, let it dru overnight beofre putting a sealer on it, The stronger the ratio of coffe to water the darker it will go. Regards Russell at Tile Doctor p.s do a small test first to make sure you like it though.
