Instead of penny tile, nickel tile. Start w/ cardboard template. Set fiberglas mesh (like for screen doors) over template. Use Weldbond Glue (for mosaic tiles) to attach the nickels to the mesh. Remove the template and cut excess mesh away from the nickels. Then install like tile.
GREAT IDEA.. I SAW AN IDEA FOR A PENNY FLOOR..BUT THIS IS THE WAY TO GO ABOUT IT..ALSO OTHER USES, BACKSPLASH ETC, SHOWER FLOOR..ON AND ON A penny saved.. is a cool tile floor! Make your own mosaic tile sheets with pennies and mesh backing, then install like tiles! #diy #home see at: http://big-design.blogspot.com/2011/01/penny-saved-is-tile-floor.html
Penny floor - concrete base painted black, took skirting boards off, pva glued all the pennies down (£36)- epoxy resin bought from www.elichem.co.uk i used the general purpose clear epoxy resin. Easy to mix/use - no bubbles and set in less than a day - painted feature wall with homebase chocolate truffle 096454 - very happy with result
Penny Floor: First make a template for your pennies using mesh backing for mosaic tiles. Use any kind of glue that's meant to adhere metal and start gluing your pennies onto the mesh. Stick on your completed mesh tiles and grout them in place with Laticrete epoxy grout in chocolate truffle.
