Need help finding flat 6 x 6 square china tile for mosaics

Posted by phish (My Page) on

A few years ago I bought some "china" tiles from kp tiles but they seem to have gone out of business. These are thin flat square tiles that look like china. I recall them coming in bigger sizes too. You can cut them up for mosaics just like you do with china plates, but you don't have any bumps, ridges, curves, ect. They were certainly pricier than china you find at a flea market or garage sale, but for me the convenience, selection and flatness was worth the price.

Does anyone know what these are called and/or where I can find them?

Try here. I've purchased other items from her before and I can recommend her. I've not tried the flat ceramic tile broken china before but I would like to!

Found another! These are called faux china.

It has been a long time, but I have bought some of the faux china from Arctic Mermaid before and was pleased with the service.
