Craft stunning mosaic projects--even if you've never tried this classic art form. As you enjoy the creative work, you'll gradually master a range of striking techniques and styles. Start with a trivet that uses standard-size tiles in a limited palette, and then cut your own tiles for an eye-catching picture frame. Experiment with the "reverse method," and incorporating found objects into a design. The highlight are the final projects which may seem complicated at first, but are actually quite simple--such as casting slabs for garden stepping-stones.
"Sets the stage for beginners by fully investigating the materials and tools needed for this craft, then showcasing most of the techniques...a fine sensibility to good contemporary design. All feature good instructions and color photography."--Booklist
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
After a page or two on mosaics' history and famous practitioners (e.g., Chagall, Gaudi, and Picasso), this English artist sets the stage for beginners by fully investigating the materials and tools needed for this craft, then showcasing most of the techniques--including cutting, applying adhesive, casting, grouting--in step-by-step photographic format. The 16 projects are graduated in terms of difficulty, from easy to complicated; all are geared to novices, with a fine sensibility to good contemporary design. Among the more intriguing projects, all of which feature good instructions and color photography, are a geometric sun catcher, plant pot with ladybugs, and an elephant panel. Unfortunately, the supplier list, at the end, is restricted to British firms. Templates and glossary appended. Barbara Jacobs
