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.
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 plated steel ceiling panels possessed an additional characteristic that fueled their popularity. They have an hour burn rating at 1300 degrees, which provided an effective fire retardent. In the early 20th century, many first floor stores and shops had apartments homes on the second floor. Tin ceilings installed on the first floor gave the second floor residents adequate time to escape a deadly fire.
