Mosaic Lesson, Part II

So have you gathered lots of beach stuff? I hope so. Or dig out your jars of beach stuff that are lying around.
So here’s how you make a mosaic: you use a tile adhesive from the hardware store. Smear it on, then stick on the pieces. Start with big pieces. Then cram the smaller things around.
I haven’t put the grout on yet. To be honest, it may never happen. I don’t set myself up for failure. That’s a tip for you right there. Anyway, if you’d like to grout, buy it at the hardware store. Directions are the back of the jar. Yes, it’s that easy. So now you know how to make a mosaic.
Tomorrow I’m showing you my weird sign.
So, are you inspired? Let me know.

  • I love mosaics – the best bit for me is always the grouting! Grouting makes even the weirdest looking ugliest creation beautiful! I love how it just transforms the object. I also like playing around with the colour of the grout – I like a darker colour grout with lighter tiles/bits, and light-coloured grout with darker tiles/bits.
