H&T Tile Inlay

I'm not the one who came up with the tile inlay in the Homes and Tomes hall. That was Pizazz. But it's one of the most asked-about features of our hall. On the old forum, Pizazz was kind enough to post the instructions in the thread about the Corporate Headquarters of Homes and Tomes. However, since we don't know how long the old forums will continue to exist, I've copied his instructions here. Enjoy!

4 white tiles, 4 red tiles, and 1 gold coin tile in 3 layers. Everything is at the same X, Y coordinate but the layers are at different Z coordinates
Layer 1:
  • 2 white, 2 red - scale as desired.
  • Rotate the red tiles 45
  • Rotate the white tiles -45 
  • Roll 1 red and 1 white tile 179.25 and roll the other 1 red and 1 white tile -179.25
Layer 2:
  • 2 white, 2 red - scale to 1/2 of layer 1. 
  • Rotate the white tiles 45
  • Rotate the red tiles -45
  • Roll 1 red and 1 white tile 179.25 and roll the other 1 red and 1 white tile -179.25
  • raise the layer 0.010 - I might be off on how far to raise it 

Layer 3:
  • 1 gold coin tile
  • scale to layer 1 scale + small amount - I think in the case of this example the gold is 0.10 larger than layer 1
  • Rotate the gold coin tile 45 degrees.
  • raise or lower the tile to get the desired border effect.
