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.
False ceilings are a popular way to change the look and feel of a ceiling, and make it stronger and sturdier too. You can apply the façade to either a part of the ceiling or the entire ceiling too. Mostly, Plaster of Paris is used to make false ceilings, and you can actually unleash your creativity while making the false ceiling. Whether you want some intricate design, or some letters and words on the ceiling, anything and everything is possible with false ceilings.
With so many reproduced tiles available it may get a little tricky to tell the vintage pieces from the newer models. Older ceiling tin is heavier than the newer version and has surfaces showing lots of rust, dents, chippy paint, rough scaly edges and sharp nail holes. Although reproductions are made to look like the real thing, you will notice that the new items are lighter and smoother and are simply too perfect. Also worth mentioning is that sometimes old tiles appear new when they are not. This can happen when a vintage piece is cleaned and refinished or an original tile is framed with an old door or window trim.
