Other crafters have had great success selling frames made out of old tiles and inserting a canvas with florals and other images. While many current artists are discovering a variety of ways to use old ceiling tins and other salvage materials, the Pennsylvania Dutch have crafted objects from tin for a very long time. For example, they are noted for creating barn stars out of old tin roof material. Many stores specializing in country gifts sell reproduction stars.
Unlike older tiles which rust, newer tiles are often made with a special powder finish which is rust-proof, allowing for indoor and outdoor use. But even "cleaned up" older tiles look and feel differently than new ones. Collectors who handle lots of these detailed works of art learn to distinguish the differences. While true collectors mix and match their collections with different examples of tiles, homeowners who may want to remodel a kitchen ceiling or frame a fireplace need to find multiple tiles. They generally look toward new versions of these handsome decorative items.
Once you choose your ceiling tiles, you will need to get them installed. You can get this professionally done, or you can do it yourself. Just make sure that if you are going to do this you purchase an extra ten percent or so of tile to use for the edges where you can't use a full tile. You can look on the internet for instructions on how to install tine ceiling tiles, and then you will get a better idea of just what is involved. You can also find information on smooth-on and tin ceiling tiles in this manner.
