Not every use for the KnK thrills and delights with visual inspiration. Sometimes I use my KnK for things that have nothing to do with paper. Actually, come to think of it, I have never used the Maxx for scrapbooking.
This past week I used the Maxx for something very mundane. Tile templates. I’m making tiles for a bathroom, and I wanted to be able to cut out the tile shapes and sizes according to the Fibonacci principal. Using the Make-the-Cut software let me do this easily. I created squares and circles with the size of their areas reflecting the differing Fibonacci sizes.
Now I can take those cutouts and place them on the floor and walls where I want to tile to see how they will fit, and arrange my pattern accordingly. Once I have my pattern and tile count determined, I can then go back to the software, and enlarge each shape by the percentage of shrinkage of my clay. I then cut templates out of heavy mylar or acetate, and use them as the form that I put on my moist clay. When they come out of the kiln, their size will be (if I calculated properly) the same as what I used to put up on the wall to work out my initial design.
Mundane? Yes. Useful? Yes!
