Let me know if you find and Al. I'm down to my last container. These tiles are what I use on the dark side for cobble stones and such.

Gary: You found the right company, but not the right tiles. The colored tiles are still available, but the plain mono color tiles have disappeared. I tried the colored tiles awhile back, but couldn't get an authentic look when I stained them. You and Al might have better luck with them. I hope so. I tried contacting the company in Isreal but got no answer. Let me know if you guys have better luck than me. Thanks for the help. JOHN

I couldn't find the plain ones John your right they seem to have been discontinued. I would prime them with a buff or grey then paint/airbrush them the final colours needed.

Curt unfortunately it appears that Ruth's is going on hold again.  My health has taken another turn and I probably won't be modeling for awhile.  As of yesterday I'm under doctors orders to keep my feet above the level of my heart whenever possible.  That precludes me from sitting at my bench.  The other thing that will keep me honest is that SWMBO was there when the doctor gave me the order.  I go today for another test.  Hopefully the news will be better.

I'll still be checking the forum and commenting, but it's going to be a while before I do another project.  See you when possible.

Sorry to learn of this John. Follow Dr's orders and maybe you will be back at it sooner then you think.

Great work so far on this John, those Mosaic stones look great. I'll have to check the stores here in Aus for something similar. Nice one.

Peter:  The stones I used were made in Isreal.  I bought these on a clearence 5 or 6 years ago.  I have not been able to locate any.  I tried to contact the company at their Web address, but never received an answer.  I'll dig out the address and send it to you.  Maybe you'll have better luck.

Thanks John, yes I read in your previous blog. I thought perhaps there may be a similar product, or perhaps, even the same product available somewhere in Oz. If I find something, I'd be happy to ship some your way. ;-)

Peter if you are successful I would greatly appreciate any thing.  I'm down to having enough for one more fairly small project.  If you haven't looked at my thread on Frenchies Barbecue you might want to.  The barbecue is made from the tiles.

Thanks Gary.  Looks like they have what I want.  The only drawback is the cost of shipping. I'll have to see if they have a distributor here in the States.  Thanks again.
