Default Where is Cork in Home Depot?

I thought I've read that people are buying self adhesive cork at home depot for the backs of tiles. I couldn't find it anywhere and 4 salespeople didn't know what I was talking about.
What section are you buying it in?

I had previously tried to just hot glue regular cork on the tile, but it didn't stick, but supposedly no one has problems with the self adhesive kind.

If you know where I can pick it up, please do tell........

thanks!
Michelle

There in lies your answer - you were at HOME DEPOT!!!!

Just teasing - but I ahve had littel or NO help from staff there - with the exception of a gal named Carol - she was AWESOME!

Anywy - I get my cork from Michaels and buy a spray adhesive (I think Krylon makes it?)

Anyway - Spray BOTH the tile and your cork and make sure you have it postioned EXACTLY wehre you want it - cause once you stick them - they are STUCK!

I then flip them right side up and the tiles won weight should be enough pressure to a get a good adhesion.

Hope that helps!
