Baby Part 2

Because the client requested pink and purple tesserae in this name mosaic, I chose brown for the ceramic letters. My initial instinct was a single border, of metallic vitreous, in pink/purple hues. However, I think I will play with more border options. Absolutely, I want pink surrounding her name. Presently, I have my eye on some hues of purple stained glass and there are some lovely pink glitter glass tiles. We’ll see… Color, color, color!

Making Mosaics

Flora’s Selfless Son

This is a perfect example of our wonderful middle school students:

He earned enough mosaic money to have his own mosaic, but he chose one as a gift. This student wanted something special for his mom. He requested her name in black ceramic letters, a purple border and pink for the background. I put in a second border around her name, for effect.

Again, you will note the grid. In designing mosaics, I often use one.
