Parisian Backdrop (HO scale)

Ceramics class resumes tonight and I'm hoping that the 4 walls of my latest HO scale building have been fired and thus ready for glazing.



But, if I am going to use ceramic tiles for the backdrop, then I need to be thinking ahead as to how I'm going to make it. What size will it be and what will be depicted upon it.

Should I make the tiles by hand or should I buy commercial ones and paint upon them?

Here's a first draft.


The area covered would be approx 160cm wide by 80cm high.

That would be 32 tiles of 20cm by 20cm.
