The ancient decorative art of mosaic is, today, increasingly appreciated for the beauty it can bring to the home, both inside and out. Now, Mosaic Workshop shows how the complete beginner can learn to transform a variety of everyday objects, from tables to picture frames. Beginning with a brief history of mosaic, each chapter focuses on a different aspect of design and technique, including color, laying, contrast, texture, pattern, and movement. These aspects are then beautifully demonstrated in24 original projects, with designs that incorporate an array of motifs, from fish, birds, and animals to fruits and abstract designs. Basic techniques are skillfully explained and illustrated, and there are ideas for a variety of applications, such as splashbacks, showers, floors, and walls. Complete with200 color photos as well as templates, the book builds chapter by chapter into a complete course in mosaics. Whether you want to embellish a picture frame or transform an entire wall, Mosaic Workshop will guide and inspire every step of the way. The authors' previous collaboration was Stylish and Simple Mosaic.
