Help with Mosaics?

Hi all

 

I’ve just discovered this section on the website - it’s going to change my life!!!!! 😁

Wondering if anyone in the community has done any mosaicking?  I’d like to start but have no idea where to!

Re: Help with Mosaics?

Hi @Julieg9426,

 

How'd you go reading through those discussions? 

 

To get started, I'd recommend some basic tools and materials, including a Mandala Art Mosaic Glass CutterMandala Art Mosaic Glue and Mandala Art White Super Fine Mosaic Grout. This Mandala Art range is fantastic when beginning mosaicing.

 

We also have a great range of coloured tiles which you can use. If cutting your own tiles is a bit daunting for a first project, I can suggest using the pre-cut tiles similar to Mandala Art  Mosaic Glass Tiles. For my first project, I used the pre-cut pieces and found it a breeze to create something I was proud of. I'm not sure if it is a snail or a nautilus, but I'll include an image below either way.

 

I look forward to seeing your first project and would encourage you to let us know if you have any questions or need assistance.

 

Mitchell

Hello @Julieg9426 

 

You can do it Julie! Remember nothing is set in cement until you glue it to the table! Even then you still have a chance to change it until the glue hardens. Don't be afraid to cut tile or glass you've got heaps of chances to try over and over again! Looking forward to your first attempt. Please post your work!

 

Cheers,

Red

Re: Help with Mosaics?

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble adding multiple photos. If you're on a phone, you just need to add them one at a time. It's often a little easier if you add one, then add some text, then add another one. When on a desktop computer you can add as many photos as you like in one go.

Hi Jane

 

Even when trying to upload a photo on my desktop I get this error:
