I’m not sure what the weather’s like where you are, but where we are it’s dark and cold and kind of slushy. What better way to brighten up a day like that? And though these two designs were based on a black tabby and a torbie, part of the fun of being an artist is I can make their stripes any color I want!
I love my tiles with my art and photos transferred to the surface, but I also like the idea of tiles with texture. I used my linoleum blocks for the “Tabbies” series to create some texture with the impression along with color by inking up the linoleum block and pressing it into the shaped tile to imprint both the color and the design into the surface.
And Mariposa, the only tabby in the house, debuted as a supurrvisor kitty when I made these!
NOTES ON USE:
I like them for decoration, but they are also useful as coasters or as a base to display something or even hang on the wall.
- YES: These work great with items filled with hot food or liquids, like mugs of coffee or tea or dishes filled with cooked food. There is not enough heat transferred to affect the polymer.
- YES: These tiles can be used indoors or out, in wet areas like the bathroom or pool, and can even be hung on the wall.
- NO: These are not safe for use with food. Don’t use one as a plate.
- NO: These cannot be used with items taken out of the oven or microwave or off the stove, any item which has been heated by extended cooking—the polymer will soften from the heat.
They are about 4.75″ square, about 1/4″ thick, and virtually unbreakable because the polymer is flexible after it’s baked.
Orange Tabbies Tiles
Right now I only have “Wrinkled Pajamas” and “Fawnball” available in orange but I hope to print more as soon as I can.
How to order
The ordering option below includes the names of all tiles available in this color. If a design name is missing, it means it’s sold out and I need to make more. If you’d like a design that’s missing, please let me know!
