Mosaic Basics contains all you need to know to start making beautiful mosaics. Author Teresa Mills, an experienced mosaic artist, guides the reader through all the basics including preparing baseboards, cutting and gluing tiles, grouting, and creating designs. She also lists all needed tools and equipment and explains their uses.
Each of the 15 projects is demonstrated with step by step photographs, and close up diagrams will give added clarity to potentially tricky stages. At a glance panels show the tools and materials you’ll need, and actual sized photographs demonstrate the range of tiles necessary to complete the piece.
The projects include everything from a still-life panel suitable for framing, to a decorative design to embellish an outdoor path or patio. More than 500 captioned color photos show and explain every aspect of creating mosaic art.
