To make a mosaic art piece, basically you need the following items:
Base (mdf or piece of plywood or a table top for example) , mosaic tiles, goggles, gloves, tile cutter/nipper, grout, grout pigment, silicone glue or adhesive, clean rags or sponges (for cleaning your piece after completing project)
|Iridescent effect tiles|
|Unusual mosaic shapes with words/faces/hearts on them!|
Boy, what fun could I have with these??!!
Here's one I made earlier:
This was very simple to make; first I used an apple shaped mdf for it's eye catching shape and arranged the mosaic tiles onto the base. I then glued the pieces on using PVA glue, left it for 24 hours to dry. Using some ready made grout I filled in the gaps between the mosaics. After ten minutes, I used a damp rag and wiped the tops of the tiles clean. And, there you have it - a gorgeous decorative mosaic plaque !!!
