Thanks so much again all!  Smiley

can i have your autograph? Cheesy
LOL! Too cute! But of course. Wink

My big question: Did you cut the glass pieces for the mosaic or do you buy them pre-cut like that? I ask because I've made mosaics with pieces of broken tile & broken plates but never with glass (I think I've been too afraid of cutting myself!!). So forgive my ignorance!
All the glass I cute myself. Pre-cut glass is almost double (sometimes more), than what you can get in sheets. What kind of glass also will affect the cost.

One thing you can count on when doing mosaics, cuts. No matter how careful you are it will happen occasionally. There is a little of my DNA in each mosaic I've done. Cheesy But so far I've not done a really bad one...

You should try mosaics. Any questions I would be glad to help with. Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I could do a tutorial on how to mosaic. It will take me sometime to put together, but I will do it. Smiley
