Picture frames, stepping stones, a Tile & Roses Tray: even with no experience, you can learn to make these and other beautiful mosaics. From the most basic information (How do I cut tesserae? What do I need to know about grout?), to simple techniques (How do I mosaic a picture under glass?), and beyond, this well-illustrated question-and-answer guide leads beginners through every procedure. For each skill, there is an accompanying project: practice pique assiette (a base covered with randomly sized, coloured pieces) on an elegant wall hook, and try the "double reverse" method (laying a design out on a temporary surface and transferring it onto its final base) to give a table a fabulous new top. An artists' gallery provides additional, inspiration. This book offers everything one needs to know to succeed in mosaics. Terms and tools unique to mosaics are explained clearly and concisely. Each technique is well illustrated and a list of supplies is included.
