(Aka, whatever I have in the house, or can get for free.) I'm very happy with my wood floors I created, but I want to mix up the textures a little and not have just wood for the whole thing. Also, scoring the boards with the dremel took two people and I kinda need to be able to do the rest by myself. Here are the methods I'm contemplating: Egg carton stones (I have 2 crates saved and another in the fridge.) Homemade clay or paper clay stones (My fireplace turned out well, but I need a better sealer: http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=66228) Individual life-sized self adhesive fake tiles that can supposedly be bought for like, a buck each Now, for my second dilemma...

Should I create separarate tiles and glue them on or should I spread on a layer of paper clay and just score in the lines? Should I glue to a template and not the actual floor and then glue the template in? I'm open to any and all suggestions... Here are some real-life floors I like:
