How do I choose the correct adhesive for my mosaic project? Weldbond adhesive is excellent for flat surfaces such as tabletops. When you start to work on 3-D projects like candle shelters, pots, or birdhouses you will want to use the silicone adhesive or liquid nails. These are thicker adhesives and will hold your glass in place rather than allowing them to slide with gravity. How do I use the mosaic mesh product? Lay your pattern on your work bench. Cover the pattern with plastic wrap. Next lay the mosaic mesh down on top of the pattern and glue your tiles/glass onto the mesh. Weldbond works great. Once the glue is dry pick up the mesh, peel the plastic wrap off the back and adhere the mesh onto your wall using mastic.
Raise your hands if you are totally psyched about what is happening in today’s arts and crafts world. In true Arnold Horshack form “OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. ” What has gotten me so excited - the rise of Mixed Media Collage. I have a confession to make, even though I work mainly in the art glass world - I am so the closet Mixed Media Collage junkie. No wonder, my love of combining tiny pieces of tesserae to create mosaics translates perfectly to combining layers of mixed media to create a similar effect. Mixed Media Collage brings so many techniques together to create wonderful masterpieces. It’s all about the layering and composition. And it teaches us so much about what looks “right” and what doesn’t. Now mind you, I said I was a junkie, not an expert. But I would like to share with you my addiction and the method to
To celebrate the end of the year for Boy Scout Den 41 in Tampa, Florida, the kids had a Mosaic in the Park party. Using stained glass chips nipped into triangles, each boy made a mosaic picture frame for his mom for Mothers Day. The boys wrote personal messages to their mothers on the back of the frames. Their troop leader grouted the frames, and each child had a hand-made mosaic project for Mothers Day. The kids loved making them, and the moms loved the frames. This is a very easy project. It requires no glass cutting by the kids, and no previous mosaic experience. Time saving tips 1. Draw a border around the edges of the frame and instruct the children not to go past the line - this allows room for grouting the edge. 2. Nip chips into triangles, and nip 1/2 of those triangles into smaller triangles.
