Mosaics for the First Time

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2005 - Crafts & Hobbies - 112 pages
Picture frames, stepping stones, trays: even with no experience, you can learn to make these and other gorgeous mosaics. From the most basic information (How do I cut tesserae?), to simple techniques (How do I mosaic a picture under glass?), and beyond, this well-illustrated question-and-answer guide leads beginners through every procedure. For each skill, there's an accompanying project: practice pique assiette (a base covered with randomly sized pieces) on an elegant wall hook, or perhaps the "double reverse" method (laying a design out on a temporary surface and transferring it onto its final base) to give a table a fabulous new top.
