More Joy in Mosaics

I needed to make another panel for the other side of my wall, there's nothing like brightening up a brick wall with some colourful mosaics , same kind of flower but different colors and i'm happy with the way it turned out . This is just grouted and im waiting for some drying time before the final polish and then it will be attached to my wall with liquid nails, so I know it will be there forever :) 

I've also been trying to sculpt a flower out of chicken wire, ready to have a kind of concrete mix slathered on and then I can mosaic this. Im having a fair bit of trouble, not to mention a thousand cuts up my arm lol   I am taking a workshop shortly with a Mosaic Artist that just happens to live less than 15 mins away so i'm really looking forward to learning lots from her, in the meantime I cant help but play

Im so glad I re-discovered this art form, im in my element right about now :)


  1. Really cool Karen - I like the idea of the 3D flower and can't wait to see how it comes out. One of my friends is working on a large community mosaic project that I thought you might like to see.

  2. Thankyou Ruth and Wow that is going to be amazing, thankyou for the link, i'll keep watching that xoxo

  3. Chicken wire is evil! The flower looks good though, I hope the concrete took ok?

  4. Thanks Zed and lol yes I know, I haven't tried the concrete yet, to scared haha i'll wait till my workshop and learn properly xoxo


Thanks for looking,I'd love to hear from you so please feel to leave a comment :)
