You did a great job, and should do more mosaics. The first one is always the biggest pain. Smiley

What an awesome peice!  Your teacher will love it, I'm certain of that!

To me, grouting is always the scary part of mosaics.   Undecided  You made an excellent choice with your grout.

I love that you made the shape a sax rather than putting the picture on a square board and mosaicing (is that a word?? mosaicing?) the whole thing.  Does that make sense?   Cheesy

Anyhoo....fabulous job!
Thanks for sharing!

Awesome, awesome, awesome! My saxo buddies would absolutely love this (I'm a guardie, and I still adore it!).

With the dark grout, it reminds me of the Yellow Submarine!   Cheesy  I think it looks great.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

As a clarinetist/saxophonist I think that's awesome!  I think you did a great job.  It may be a lot of work that you're not sure about doing but I'd love to see what else you could create!  Great job!  Cheesy

I made mine, with lots of glitter and shinies.

As a musician and sibling to an incredible sax player (I'm only mediocre), I think the dark grout looks better. It kind of "ages" the sax so that it looks more sophisticated. Not to mention the lighter grout would've washed out all of the color, if you know what I mean. It would've been way too bright.

I really love this! Now I want to make one for at least one or two of my favorite instruments. Probably Piano and French Horn or something. WAY easier than saxophone, I don't think I have that much patience Smiley
