I only saw this post today and, boy, what a super idea! Thank you for sharing. I have an iron door scraper in front of my basement door and never thought of using it in that way. Will try the technique subito....

Evelyne, I would love to know if your iron piece works for tiles! Everything I look at now, I think - can it make tiles??? Please post if you try it!




Exactly!! I'm now looking at my tiny decorative candy mold trays and going hmmmm..... can you imagine how cool these would be as little mosaic tiles? Or tile overlays!


Yesss! I haven't seen any designer ice cube trays like you have, but I think I have a half circle one!! I'll be looking for that now!

Paula, of course I will post the result here. It may take a few moments though because the iron door scraper is in my Italian house and I will be there only at the end of this month.

Hi Paula and all

 

I promised to try the iron door scraper to produce mini tiles when I'am in my Italian studio. Yesterday I finaly had time to try it and her's the result:

Hi Paula, I'am glad you like the result. Oh yes, I have been looking too at everything in the DIY stores and on building sites.... ;)

 

Happy potting
