Title: Mosaic Basics

Teresa Mills
Description: Each project is demonstrated with step-by-step photographs, and close-up diagrams give added clarity to tricky stages. At-a-glance panels show the tools and materials you'll need, and actual-size photographs demonstrate the range of tiles necessary to complete the piece. Clear templates can be easily reproduced to the required size on graph paper or scaled up or down on a photocopier and include simple geometric designs, heart and flower motifs, and more elaborate birds, animals, and portraits. A core-techniques section teaches basic skills such as motifs, cutting and grouting tiles, and using colour, as well as working with a range of materials, from broken pottery and tesserae to beautiful millefiori tiles.
