I found a broken light diffuser (grid) at our recycling center and tried a project I had read about before. I couldn't find the article, so I winged it and it worked out! I rolled a slab of clay out, pressed the grid into the clay all the way down and let it dry that way. The next day, tiny tiles fell right out of the grid!! It was like magic! No cutting, no marring, no sanding! They were all perfectly cut to the same size. I glazed them and can now make a great mosaic trivet or, if I make more, something bigger! There are other sizes of light diffusers, I just haven't found one yet!
OMG what a great tip!! They are so cute, I can see putting them between bigger tiles, framing, color bands, all sorts of stuff.
Thank you! This is exciting...
