NEW IN PAPERBACK
Brighten your porch, patio, deck, garden, or yard with colorful, decorative mosaics you can easily make yourself. Over 25 projects will add charm to all your outdoor settings. You can use either new or recycled materials for both the surfaces and the tesserae that cover them; just imagine, for example, a worn out table enlivened by patterns formed from broken pottery. Give a statue of Buddha a handsome coat of old chipped China, and place it in a quiet, meditative garden spot. Transform your outdoor dining area with fashionably retro mosaic furniture, serving carts and trays. Warm up the yard with a decorative chiminea, a terra cotta fireplace on a stand. For a different look, do your mosaic work without grouting; it creates interesting effects on a garden thermometer. Or choose from a welcome sign, tabletop fountain, stepping stone path, gazing balls, hearts and roses planter, and more.
