KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

I took a class this weekend and learned how to make a mosaic! It is so much fun and a very creative.
First you sketch out a picture.
Next you select the colors you think you want to use. At first my flower was going to be reds and oranges but I changed my mind and went for the blues.
Cutting the glass is very easy, I thought that would be the hardest part. There is a piece of contact paper, sticky side up on top of my design. You place your glass on the contact paper following your design.
Here is my design completed, I was super happy the way it turned out. Rachael, just realized it is a blue daisy!!!
Here is a close up before I grouted it. I loved piecing all those little puzzles in place. Kind of like quilting!
Here is a close up of the piece completely grouted and dry. I enjoyed working with glass and might just have to try it again sometime.
My instructor was Amy Bruckner of Piece of Mind Mosaics. As an added bonus she only lives 5 minutes away!! This is a table she made.
Here is a round piece, waves and a mermaid.
This was great fun. If you ever are tempted give it a try.
Sorry my pictures are not that great, learning how to use Picasa. Need some more lessons Sujata!!!
