1  Mosaic Forest Scene in the Shower in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by craftygram on: January 19, 2007 11:56:00 AM
My son built his house from a kit. He included many personalized features and it is really a beautiful house. His wife and I did this mosaic in their master bedroom shower.

One note: the variations in the grout is not mold! It is because the dark grout was still a bit wet when I took these pictures.













My grand daughter had to be in at least one of the photos!  Smiley


It took forever to finish but we are pleased with the end result. Let me know what you think!

2  Stained Glass in my Bathroom Windows in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by craftygram on: January 12, 2007 02:03:49 PM
Instead of putting curtains in my bothroom windows I made stained glass pieces. Our house has two bathrooms, one with two windows, so I made three pieces total.

In the first bathroom the window was a bit large. I made a light house scene.



In this one you can see that the window is actually in the shower.


In the other bathroom I did an underwater theme.


Here are a couple of close ups.



These were an interesting alternative to traditional window treatments.

3  Four Seasons Mosaic in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by craftygram on: January 12, 2007 11:40:26 AM
I did these mosaics using stained glass a couple of years ago and my daughter convinced me to post them. They are depicting the four seasons.  I used the cover of the L.L. Bean catalogue as a guide. They aren't exact but close to the covers.  All except summer that is. The summer catalogue had bathing suits and that just wouldn't fit with the others.

All four together hanging on the wall


Winter


Spring


Summer


Fall


They took quite a long time to complete but I am pleased with the results.

4  Mosaic Gazing Balls in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by craftygram on: May 23, 2006 11:58:33 AM
I started with regular gazing balls you can get at any garden store. I got mine at Big Lots for $8.88 or some strange Big Lots price like that. They came with a stand too. Although I'm not using the stand for these.  Mine on on concrete slabs I salvaged from a recent demolition.

Then I filled each of the gazing balls with spray insulation foam. I was afraid that the glass gazing ball would be too fragile to handle the mosaic tiles. One can of expansion foam filled two gazing balls. You can get this foam at a hardware store like Home Depot. It comes in an aresol spray can.

Then I lightly sanded the outside of the gazing ball so the mastick would stick to the gazing ball better. 

I used mastick, the same material used to tile a ceramic tile floor, to tile the gazing balls. I used this because this is what I had on hand.

I then grouted them using regular grout.

Here they are:
