For background on this mosaic you can check here. Otherwise here is the result.

Now the finished piece.










This close up of the grout.


First time using MAC glue, and I had 0 grout bleed on this whole piece! All this glass and no grout under any. MAC glue is my new best tool in mosaics! I highly recommend it for use on indoor mosaics.

That's a wrap...or is that rap?  Smiley

I love this.  The red really made it pop.  I think any musician would be proud to hang this in his/her home!

WOW!  I remember seeing your first post when it was in progress.  I was impressed then, with just the glass on it.  I am just amazed at this piece.  Its incredible.  I am so glad that I am so addicted to this site that I check many times a day, or I may have missed it.  The red really makes the music under the glass pop.
