Sometimes it's ok to break a dish (or two)...July 18th, 2009 in blog, projects
Well....I'm in the midst of getting ready for a garage sale (which is long overdue...), and one of the "piles" I've sorted through are a bunch of old plates...which have been collected with mosaic work in mind. I did my first one a few years ago, and you know how it is when you're new into some kind of project and/or idea, and you go a little overboard collecting pieces and parts for your newest junk venture??? I know it's got to be more than just me...ha ha! Anyway...I don't need to tell you...but I'm getting rid of "a lot" that I didn' really need!!
But, I then decided to look back at a few pieces that I've done - so thought I'd share. The first few were bowling balls in their former life - they're so much happier now! The one that I did with seashells and sea glass was the easiest - just glob the grout on the ball and stick 'em in (kind of like they're buried in the sand) - no wiping off necessary - and then finished off with a light sprinkling of sand from the Sunshine State (I always bring back a little for projects...)!
The rest are tabletops or stools. They're fun to do - and each one is definitely one-of-a-kind!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
