Been doing mosaics for about 4 or 5 months now, and I am completely obsessed! With each new one I learn something new I did not know before.

I'm using most anything in the pieces that I can figure out how to use. Making pendants is fun, and make great one day projects. My new thing now is experimenting with coloring my grout myself, and adding glitter or other things to make it more part of the piece than just boring grout.

At any given time I have about 3 - 4 projects in various stages. Next week I am going to be trying stained glass techniques, and metal.

Meantime, here are some of the more recent pieces I have finished. ANY comments are completely welcome, and encouraged. Smiley

WOW! You're a mosaic machine!

What kind of adhesive did you use on the candle holders? I just made a clock using what appears to be a similar type of glass marbles and I used liquid nails. It was OK but if I could find something that dried quicker so my pieces wouldn't shift that would rock!

I have used 2 adhesives for this type of application, and both seem to work about the same. Merchantile Mosaic glue, and Lexel.

Wait til you see the newest pieces I am working on.  Smiley
