Many artists like to paint on vintage ceiling tiles. One artist I am familiar with, looks for tins that are more than 100 years old, in good shape and require minimal prep work. The artist I am referring to generally passes up tiles that have holes or dents, preferring instead pieces with unusual designs or shapes which inspire her to use the background as part of her subject matter and design work.
Tin ceiling tiles can be used to give a whole different look to your ceiling. They can be purchased in a number of different finishes, including white, brass, chrome, and copper. The white ones are even paintable if you would like to have another color. They come in a variety of different patterns, including floral circles, panels, fans, and vines, or they come in a variety of textures or as smooth tiles. Many have the look of antique tin ceiling tiles.
First, let us begin with a little background about tin ceiling tiles. Pressed or embossed tin ceilings were very popular during the Victorian Era as an affordable substitute for the plaster-designed ceilings found in wealthy European homes. Thin metal sheets of tin, copper or stainless steel were stamped with intricate patterns and often painted white to resemble the more expensively-produced, hand-carved or molded plaster ceilings. Companies in Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania mass produced thin metal plate during the late 1800s and created numerous patterns from which buyers could choose.
