Some of the delft tiles were fired already, not something I expected as the kiln is only fired if it's full. I have another 40 odd that still need firing, both whites and corner decorated. I will then have a good 50 tiles to choose the best from. As you can see they are not all the same size, roughly 1cm square. Another batch, in porcelain, is slightly bigger, more correctly sized to represent 15cm square tiles, that I can decorate with flowers or fruit baskets, I particularily like Makkum tiles. I think I'll leave the shepherd and shepherdess tiles until I get much better at miniature tile painting.
These tiles are my version of a 17th century Delft corner decoration.
I did notice on other blogs that the first room many miniaturists finish is the kitchen and I did the same, although the library was a close second. These tiles are meant to replace the 'not quite right' Fimo tiles I have already taken out as I really didn't like them. I tend to change things as I make better things, that way I won't need another house as I don't have the space for another one. Except of course that maybe one day I will build a canal house, like the one in the dutch magazine...
I haven't taken any good photos of the rooms in my house yet, but I'll keep trying.
Happy mini-ing, Idske
