Mosaic and landscape pictures

Mosaic and landscape pictures Mosaic and landscape pictures Mosaic pictures or landscape pictures are easy to produce in quantities. You will need simple flower pot saucers, or if the end result should be a mosaic mirror, thin sheets of plywood with a frame are probably better. You will also need plaster or tile grout. For the mosaic design itself, you will require old thin tiles which are often available as a waste product from DIY stores or tile wholesalers. Old cutlery, shells, pretty stones, glass beads, an old broken mirror, even rusty wire or tin can be used as inserts and as decoration.

Please take care not to injure yourself when working with these materials. The mosaic picture can be drawn out beforehand, or the paste can simply spread out once mixed. The plaster or tile grout must be spread out 0,5cm to 1,5cm thick onto the saucer or wooden board (don’t forget to attach the wooden frame beforehand). Then you can begin to push the mosaic stones, mirror pieces and other decoration carefully into the plaster or grout. The decoration should be pushed into the grout so that the picture remains as flat and even as possible. Now the mosaic must dry out for a few hours. To finish, you can also fill in any joints (when using tile grout) with joint filler. The filler which should not be too thick or too thin can be carefully smoothed onto the joints with a damp sponge and can then be polished off with a towel.
