I love the tiles by Richard Stacey that Julie and Michelle are using in their mini projects. Still I made the decission to look for the floor tiles in my country - even knowing that it is impossible to buy many things that could be used for making miniatures here ;)First I was thinking of the resin mosaic tiles I found in one of Polish crafts e-shops. I even ordered a few packages with the different-sized plain tiles. I was unpatiently waiting for them but when they finally arrived I couldn't use them :( They are just too thick (about 5 mm) and that means I wouldn't be able to open the door! Well I might use them outside the office. So I had to decide to use something else and I bought the thick cardboard (2-3mm). Picked up the black one with the kind of "ditched" surface. It is really hard to cut but it lies perfect under the door ;) So I cut the cardboard into different size parts and painted them a bit with fair acrylic paints so that they would resemble the marble a bit. Then I added one coat of the clear nail polish on every tile. Here they are ready to put on the floor and match them up with each other:
Willkommen im... wie bitte?! Juli????
