Overview

Everything you need to know to start making beautiful mosaics

Learn all of the core techniques
Sections throughout the book teach all the basic skills, such as transferring motifs, cutting and grouting tiles, using color, and working with a range of materials, from broken pottery and tesserae to beautiful millefiori tiles.

16 easy-to-follow projects

Each project is demonstrated with both large-format step-by-step photographs, and close-up photographs that give added clarity to tricky stages. At-a-glance panels show the tools and materials you'll need.

Easily scaleable drawings

Scale plans can be reproduced to the required size on graph paper or scaled up or down on a photocopier. They include simple geometric designs, heart and flower motifs, and more elaborate birds, animals, and portraits.

Graded—for ease of use
These techniques are graded from the most basic to the more advanced, though all skills are clearly taught and are easily achievable for beginners.

Actual-size tile gauge
Actual-size photographs demonstrate the range of tiles needed to complete your projects.

Mosaic art is a popular and exciting craft for decorating mirrors, picture frames, walls, and floors. Finished mosaic pieces can also be displayed as works of art in their own right. This user-friendly book includes 16 specially designed projects that allow you to master the techniques and create spectacular finished pieces while you are learning.
