More Tiles

So I made some more tiles the other day.  They’re not coasters yet, but if I glued some cork to the bottom they could be.  Of course you could add these to your kitchen or bathroom tile for a bit of je ne sais quoi.  These are not from classic or well known children’s literature.  Instead I made these books from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.  You’d think these books would have some value.  But we couldn’t unload them for 10 cents a piece at our garage sale.  So I cut them up and glued them to tile.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

As always, you may purchase any of these sets that you’d like.  Not many have so far, but the option is there.  And if you like some of these and want more than four from the same book, that can probably be arranged. Maybe I need an Esty presence to not sell these tiles from.


This one is from a book about a homeless dog that’s always begging for meat from the butcher.  That’s him and the butcher in the pictures.




This one is about two anonymous kids (I think the author couldn’t draw faces) who are looking for their kitten.  Awwwwwww.


These come from a Red Ryder novel.


And these are from a book about various Native American tribes.  (The tiles aren’t this blurry, just the photo.)


More Coasters

These pictures are horrible.  I took them in a dark garage, and I think it about made my poor ipad’s camera have a stroke.  But I made some more of these.  they can be coaster or wall hangings.  And if you want two sets from the same book, I can probably do that.  They’re $15 a set, plus $5 postage.  Let me know if you’re interested.

Country –

They came out a little wrinkly.  I’m learning that some paper just doesn’t work as well.

So there’s this crafty thing I do because I love the art in comic books and kids books, and that’s turn the art from those books into drink coasters.  Sometimes I attach a hook on them so they could hang on the wall if a person wanted to go that way.  Anyway, I’m selling these little craft items here to help pay for The Real Matt Show.  They’re $15 for a set.  I’ll ship them in the U.S. for another $5.  I’m still perfecting my process.  I’m finding that different types of paper reacts differently to my adhesion procedures.  You can see the Superman tiles are a little wrinkly.  I think makes them reminiscent of old comic books and ads character.  However, most of them have turned out nice and smooth.  If you have specific pages out of your own book you want to rip out and send me, I’d be glad to apply my magical process to those pages at not extra charge. As I make more I’ll make them available here.  Let me know if you’re interested.  We can use PayPal.  Or cash.  Or barter.
