For a Design Tech class at school a year ago we had to make clocks...And I had already spotted this design in a book somewhere...So, with some patience and a whole lot of polymer clay...

http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/ViewPhoto?u=4329405&a=32241833&p=74501401 and a close up: http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/ViewPhoto?u=4329405&a=32241833&p=74501402&f=0

Let me know if you cant see them...I hope it worked...But try the links if the pics arent there:

hehe you can sort of see little gaps between the tiles...which is where some tiles fell off when I packed them to move... Smiley

Overall I really like it...It turned out alright for my first huge clay project...lemme know if you have any comments or critisisms... =)

Thank you for the compliments!  Yes, the entire thing is polymer clay, exceppt the clock ieces and the little flower pieces...I liked it because it reminded me of Starry Starry night...One of my favourite Van Gogh pieces!  =)

Oh, that's a wonderful mosaic!  Did you use any grout afterward, or just press the tiles into a base of translucent or something??

Thank you Diane B.- I used a block of translucent clay for the base, and just lightly pushed all the pieces in, when i was done with all the tiles, then i used a piece or cardboard to press them all down for the last time...No grout.  But if you did a mosaic with polymer clay you could brush it with translucent liquid clay when you're done...

such a pretty design. :]

Where you used the longer clay tiles almost reminds me of the tiny-tiny clay strings that Cynthia Toops used to make her micro-mosaics... hurts my eyes as well as my head just looking at them.  She's a very meticulous person though!

I haven't done a mosaic with polymer tiles yet myself (have done a small caned one though), but it's definitely on my list.  At a recent guild meeting, Kim Korringa had a divided plastic box just filled with the tiny tiles she'd cut from baked Skinner blend sheets, plus some of the mosaics she'd made from them, which inspired me yet again... sigh.  Guess I didn't get a photo of any of her finished items (and they don't appear on her site, just some caned mosaics), but I did get a shot of her tiles:

If you want to see any of Cynthia Toops "micro-mosaics," here's a page with a large disk bead (top) and a necklace of flat mosaic beads (near bottom):

...and there are links to a few more on this page at my site:
