This volume shows how to utilize common plaster compound techniques to create 15 mosaics that will fool all but the most discerning eye. After the plaster is applied to the surface, from boxes and frames to furniture, the designs are transfered to the medium and carved with a simple wire tool.

I purchased this book for a chance at a new craft. I love the results on my terra cotta pots. What a great idea.
