Publisher Comments:

Featuring detailed instructions and full color photography throughout, this is a complete reference of techniques and ideas for creating mosaics for the home and garden. Step-by-step sequences demonstrate the entire process, from how to develop an idea and draw the design to cutting and laying tiles and adding a beautiful finish to the piece. All of the necessary tools, equipment, and materials—including mirror glass, millefiore Venetian glass, shells, and pebbles—are explained in detail, accompanied by helpful hints on how to best set up a comfortable work area and display finished work. Detailing the basic math of scaling, the guide also explains a variety of methods for enlarging drawings and patterns, such as grids, pantographs, and overhead projection. Packed with design ideas, this companion will inspire artists to create original pieces using a broad color palette, utilize a wide range of materials, and coordinate color and pattern to best effect.
