After work I was able to put in about two hours of tile making. At first I was frustrated at how the Paperclay got hung up in my pasta roller. But once I cut the strips into tiles... I really liked the texture.

I also played around with adding acrylic paint to the Paperclay. I got paint all over my hands but, luckily, it washes off and now I have a decent terra cotta base color to start with before staining and aging.

it sticks worse when you first take it out of the package, work it with your hands a bit so that it's not slippery, and it should whip through the roller fine. I also made tubes and then flattened them out before feeding it into the roller, then folded and re-rollered until I got a square to work with.

i would also recommend sealing the roof when its done with mod-podge, it gives some strength to the tiles. my cat was popping the shingles off my house left right and centre before I stuck it good.

Hi dooder85

Thanks for the advice. I'll definitely try letting the clay dry a bit. Once I add the color it's really "wet" so I think your idea will really help me. And thanks for the heads up on the kitty interest. My Sammy has been caught several times pawing at the house.
