But I can figure it out. I figured how to crack stones, and dance leaves, and make waves in my bath. I unpicked a Doranen lock and I collapsed waterspouts in Westwailing Harbour. I did all of that. I can bloody do this.
But before he could defeat the pain, he had to accept it. That was the hardest part - letting the pain take him and shake him like a rat-dog with a rat. Surrendering, he sank himself beneath the surface of raw magic...

Cement Tiles

Journal Entry: Fri May 29, 2015, 11:41 AM

There was a documentary on tv recently about cement tiles. They were used to pave houses in the late 19th century and early 20th.

The hydraulic mosaic is a decorative pigmented cement tile for inner and outer spaces. The manufacturing process is characterized by the use of metal molds (climb), which reproduce the design in compartments in which the colors are subsequently compacted and fixed to the concrete base using a hydraulic press apply.

With symmetrical designs, it is usually used to decorate rooms according to the concept of carpet. Compositions consisting of a monochrome stripe in contact with the baseboard of the room, and a decorative border framing a fund in which a motif that was formed by connecting with tiles adjacent to form a composition was repeated.

Oficios de arte

Most Art-Nouveau famous artists made designs for the production of these tiles.

Apparently they are now becoming fashionable again - and not only as pavements, but also as wall decoration (just like so many other tiles). Since they are made of concrete, even if they are expensive, they can last for about 90 years.
In spite of that I see them thrown away all the time when houses are demolished and something else is renewed... :|

Anyway, the making is quite interesting. Looks as if they were using cookie cutters  - which is kind of an inspiring thought actually...

And a fairly simple DiY tutorial

And some interesting artworks from the community

Hey! :wave: I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for adding me to your watch list. :D I'm glad to see you liked my works enough to follow them and I appreciate the support. :heart: Thanks again!

Your article about Creative Tourism is very intriguing; I've never heard of such a thing. I will most certainly be reading it all further and thinking about if there is any way I could get involved. :nod: Thanks for writing it - well done!

Oh well...your icon is just captivating :giggle: But seriously, I love the variety in your gallery.

And thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot to me. I had a hard time trying to put all information together, so it is encouraging that you are finding it interesting. I would really love to try some of that as a customer - see if this helps broadening the offer :P Just let me know if I can be of any further help

:lol:   Whilst rules were broken during the filming of "Rebel without a cause..." no pigeons were arrested. However if we obey all the rules - we miss all the fun  :lol:
Happy it made you smile Beltaneh   :lol:
