Every week for the last 8 - 9 months I have been learning with my Rabbi's wife (the Rebbetzin). She is so wonderful, and kind I wanted to make a special thank you for her, and this is what I did.

I took some photos of the Rabbi in our temple, and then made a mosaic frame to put the picture into. Here is the result, and I am on my way to take it to her now. The pictures do not show the china pattern very well I'm afraid.





I am so pleased with how the photo, and mosaic frame turned out.  Smiley

What a nice and thoughtful gift! I'm sure she will love it.

I noticed a bit of a shine to the grout. What did you use to seal it? I'm always torn when it comes to what to use to seal an item.

Thank you PinkyK Smiley She did like it very much, and placed it on the entry table in their hallway.

For all my indoor mosiacs I use Polycrylic to seal them, and give them an overall shine. It has almost no smell and is water washable. Depending on how much shine I want, is how many coats I use. One coat leaves barely any shine, but seals the piece nicely.  Smiley
