This mosaic was created for the Key Challenge on MASGO, a mosaic and stained glass site I frequent. The challenge was to use keys in a mosaic somehow.

Mine is made on a recycled microwave glass plate, with stained glass, glass globs and of course keys. The keys are spray painted a mottled golden color. The grout also has a gold color wash.

OMG!  This is so freakin' amazing.  I've never seen anything like this before. 

Do you have a link to that website?  I am so curious now.

BTW, how did you do with the challenge?

Great job.
