aw shucks Tongue,
I did map out a design on paper then just worked within pencil lines on the table so it was very easy Smiley

I'm speechless! (but I'm going to write anyway!  Cheesy). That is stunning, absolutely gorgeous. I have made several mosaic mirror frames but have never attempted anything as complex as your table. You inspire me to try it some day!


What they said <G> I make mosaic stepping stones and few other mosaic bits and pcs but again nothing as nice as this. Bravo!

That is beautiful!  I keep saying I'm going to mosaic a table top for our outdoor table using my mom's left over stained glass pieces but I just never get to it.....I think maybe you have given me motivation to actually get off my butt and get started on it!

GREAT work!

That table is awesome!  What kind of varnish did you use for it?  I made a 48" round mosaic table top, but I can't decide what to seal it with.

Well, as I said I couldn't grout it because it totally wrecked the look of the glass, so instead I used a really thick varnish that came in a tin and ended up kind of pouring it on...what I would actually recommend though is using something like resin (which is what I'm going to re-do it with sometime in the future) because it still does have quite sharp edges with using just a varnish. I mean it's fine for just a coffee table for adult use but if there are kids or cats in the equation it's a still a bit sharp. Plus I think it would look great with a nice thick resin'd top Smiley

This is beautiful - I love the colours. Where did you get the design from, or did you create the yourself?

Thanks guys Cheesy
meche I just started playing with geometric shapes etc. and figuring out what fitted in with the table's shape. I also new what colours and amounts of each tile etc. I had before I started so I needed something to utuilise them, i.e. I had the colours and tiles before the design came about Smiley
