Yculneb asked:
Love this idea - wonder if it will work with aluminium cans.......just drank a coke so will give it a try
suzy6281 answered:
Let me know how it comes out! The thin aluminum of a disposable pan seems to be more pliable, but I'm betting the aluminum from a can might be another good option.

Hi from Georgia! :)
KDB136 asked:
Could these be used for a back-splash in the kitchen or bathroom? Would they be durable enough to withstand water, etc.? How were tile patterns embedded into the foil? Thanks for a beautiful project!!! Kathy
