Top tiles DIY night courses – Australia.

Posted onOctober 2, 2010

Top tiles DIY night courses – Australia.

Top tiles stores hold a DIY night once a month at each store. These sessions are always held on a Wednesday night once a month, starting at 6.00pm and ending about 8.30-9.00pm. We structure the content of the class around the style of job the attendees are undertaking. It is an excellent way to gain some insights to the ½ dozen “secrets” that make the difference between a handyman job and a skilled professional one.

If you have bought tiles from us, then the evening is free! If you have not bought yet, then we do charge a $40 fee which is discounted off any purchase (you can bring your partner free). On the night we also offer (for purchases on the night only) an exceptional 10% discount off all Glue, Grout and Accessories. The classes are held by skilled persons and it is not just sitting down watching a DVD as you might see at some hardware stores.

In order to attend it is very wise to register at your nearest store. We will call 2-3 days before hand to remind you and we will also confirm if you are coming along on the morning of the class. For the details and dates of your next session please call Underwood on 07 3808 8805, Brendale on 07 3881 2775 or Maroochydore on 07 5443 2227. We look forward to seeing you there; we will even provide you a drink and a biscuit.

Decorative Tumbled Marble Tiles
Experience Level: Easy, suitable for all

Create beautiful functional tumbled marble coasters or purely decorative 4” tiles using a photo transfer technique and a product called Lazertran. If you use 8” tiles you can create street address tiles that can be mounted to your home – you will be the envy of the neighborhood. This is a very simple process and very inexpensive.

What you need:

Tiles [which can be purchased at just about any home improvement store], Lazertran, PPA glue, a sponge brush and a squeegie.  The middle or far right squeegies are probably best for this task.

 rt

How to create these tiles:

Copy images or words of choice onto Lazertran. Cut out the image as close as you can [doesn’t have to be exact], put in a shallow dish of water – the image will come lose from the paper backing. Paint a thin layer of PPA glue over the top of each tile, pull your image out of the water, lay it on the tile and squeegie out all the bubbles so your image lays smooth on the tile. Wa-la, you have a decorated tumbled marble tile!
This project takes about 2 hours, start to finish, which makes it a great project to make as a thank you gift, something seasonal or a great project to do with children. These tiles can be personalized using your own photos or theme of choice.
