Those who admire the beauty of mosaic art and decoration are often put off at trying their own hand at it. How on earth does a mosaic artist get started? This big, beautifully illustrated book provides the answer. The author, an experienced mosaic artist, instructs in the core techniques of preparing baseboards, cutting and gluing tiles, grouting, and creating designs. She also lists all needed tools and equipment and explains their uses. Finally, she presents 15 projects for budding mosaic artists, allowing them to master the techniques and create beautiful finished pieces as they learn. The projects include everything from a still-life panel suitable for framing to a decorative design to embellish an outdoor path or patio. More than 500 captioned color photos show and explain every aspect of creating mosaic art.
