Overview

New in Paper

Craft stunning mosaic projects--even if you've never tried this classic art form. As you enjoy the creative work, you'll gradually master a range of striking techniques and styles. Start with a trivet that uses standard-size tiles in a limited palette, and then cut your own tiles for an eye-catching picture frame. Experiment with the "reverse method," and incorporating found objects into a design. The highlight are the final projects which may seem complicated at first, but are actually quite simple--such as casting slabs for garden stepping-stones.

"Sets the stage for beginners by fully investigating the materials and tools needed for this craft, then showcasing most of the techniques...a fine sensibility to good contemporary design. All feature good instructions and color photography."--Booklist
