Mosaics for the First TimeBook - 2004
Picture frames, stepping stones, a Tile & Roses Tray: even with no experience, you can learn to make these and other beautiful mosaics. From the most basic information (How do I cut tesserae? What do I need to know about grout?), 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, colored pieces) on an elegant wall hook, and try 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. An artists' gallery provides additional inspiration.
