MOSAICS

HOW IT WORKS

We currently only offer mosaics as one of our party packages and for special events.

We make mosaics easy and fun.  We will show you how easy it is to create a masterpiece.  

 

Step 1:      

Choose your shape.  Grab some glue, a pencil and a muffin tin.

Step 2:      

Choose your tesserae (tiles and glass pieces) and put them in the muffin tin (please note that there are a few styles of tile that are meant as “accents” are priced by the piece, in addition to the cost of your project).

Step 3:      

If you want to draw a design first, do that.  If not, you can start gluing your tesserae to your shape.  Try to leave a small gap (about 1/8th inch) between the pieces, but make sure to cover the whole shape.  Try not to have any pieces hanging over the edges.  Do not put more than one layer.

Step 4:      

Let your piece dry 24-28 hours before grouting.

Step 5:      

***Do NOT pour grout, or rinse water down sinks***

Mix the grout with a small amount of tepid water until it is the consistency of tooth paste.  Spread the grout over your entire piece with the popsicle stick, making sure to push it down into all the spaces.  Let sit for 15-20 minutes, until it starts to get hazy.  Using a damp (but not wet) sponge, remove the grout from the surface of the tiles. Let sit until hazy and repeat if necessary.  Allow to dry for several hours and wipe with a dry cloth or paper towel.


You’re Done!!  Enjoy your creation!
