Before and after on the tiles .. Fred wanted me to clean up the painted tile so it would match the one he had worked on years before. I used paint thinner and a brush.

I’ve gotta photo of them hanging on their wall … I’ll post it later. >wink<

This was one of those projects . . I really enjoyed working with the tiles. Oldies but goodies. Diamonds in the rough .. I even made a temporary insta-mold impression of one of the pieces.

Made three real gnarly looking tiles. Two plastic ones and a plaster. Real deformed , with beautiful imperfections. Will post photos of those later.
