We’re planning a new mosaic. We want to try some new things so this time we’re talking about a plant/floral motif, again on a shaped ground. We haven’t done any drawing for it yet – still in the discussion stage. We improvise a lot as we make these things but setting the initial drawing and determining the shape of the ground is very important as it sets the structure of the whole piece. Once we get started, I’ll document the progress here.
Today I bought a piece of wood for the ground and as well I bought us a new pair of deluxe tile nippers. These are “compound nippers”, and the package promises we can cut tile with less pressure. That would be very helpful as we cut and break a lot of tile and crockery for a mosaic.
