Thought about sharing an idea:

How to make inexpensive tapestries / wall pictures:

I search the internet for suitable textures for tapestries or pictures. If the need arises I resize the image before printing on my printer. Then I laminate and cut it. If possible I print more than one image on the same site and then laminate. Then I cut the images and make small holes at the top left and right corners. Through the holes comes thin wire which is then shaped as a U back- and downward the image, so that the tapestry or picture is then hung from the DF-wall tiles. Hope this explanation is not too complicated and sorry no pics - don't have a cam.

Other suggesstions or ideas?

Thanks for sharing this idea. Any particular websites you could mention where you've found pictures you found useful for this purpose?

Well, no site with collections. Here and there are some useful bits. Perhaps something useful for you:

Thanks so much for the link to those rugs! Perfect timing too. In my D&D game, my players were about to explore some old ruins where one of the few unlooted rooms is supposed to contain a very dangerous animated rug left there by a dwarven cleric to kill off invaders once it was clear the invading orc army was going to kill all the dwarves. I already printed out a beautiful Persian rug from this collection in just the right size to use for this purpose.

Had not considered using the Dunjini stuff as 3-D tapestries/ Carpets... Good Idea... Does the Lamination not make them a little "Stiff"? (I am thinking more in terms of uneven floors then a Toy conforming to real world physics)...

I only laminate for wall decorations, using low-micron (thin ???) laminating film. Additionally, the wire can be bend to your liking. I usually bend it that way, that the bottom of the picture rests on the wall and the upper part is away from the wall. Thus, only a small part of the picture's area rest on the wall, helping to offset unevenness. Really large pictures (covering more DF tiles), I usually cut into several smaller pictures which are then placed separately on the walls - the bigger your painting, the more difficult to offset uneveness. I do not use this method for floor-carpets. In the post I meant carpets for walls (tapestries ???).

Roger that... It really does seem like a Kewl Idea... And I Guess if you really wanted to make a Floor Covering, A Fabric store Swatch of Decorative Material could work fine...
