More Mosaic

Good morning everyone! I completed yet another mosaic ball a couple of days ago. My basket is officially FULL! I even have an extra ball that didn't fit in the basket.
Again, these were the result of a mosaic class in Everett Wa. with Julia Jae at The Black Door Studio. As you can see, I've had a lot of fun with these. They all start with a piece of styrofoam which is then covered with tile adhesive, which is applied like butter but a bit thicker. Next, you place your stones wherever you like them. Dry overnight & grout with a sanded grout the next day. You may choose not to grout also. The one ball in the mddle front is done without grout. If you are doing one without grout you will just need to put your pieces fairly close together.
Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

So beautiful- love your mosaic work. I always found mosaic a bit like collage - a coming together of small bits to make a beautiful whole. Lovely and creative art Diane!
