fabulous! What size are they? i've never made tiles because I worried about warping (and the ensuing frustration!). Did you have any trouble with that?

And did you make the stamp yourself? I love it!

Yeah, they did warp a bit (you can probably tell!) but i dont mind a bit of character!!

They are 3" square and the 'stamp' is actually a pendant pressed into the clay!

As for putting them in my bathroom...its on my to-do list!!

Ooooo!

Just wanted to say "Oooo!"

Ok, I'm funnin' y'all.

Seriously, I love those tiles! I recently made some tiles in my ceramics class and was wondering if the backs of the tiles need to be a little rough so that the glue (or paste or whatever) will adhere to them?

I wish we owned a house so I could actually *install* my tiles on the wall! :-(
