My First Mosaic
Quite some time ago I showed you all some sneak peaks of a tile mosaic I was working on. Well it's taken me quite some time, but it's finally finished! My very own fish pond, complete with waterlilies and carp. No cleaning, filtering, or feeding required!It's made with recycled tiles and an old wooden table found at the local trendy trash shop. I took the original boring brown tiles from the tabletop, sanded it down, stained it to get the colour I wanted, drew on my design, broke up the tiles with a hammer, glued them in place with tile glue, and grouted it. My table is sitting out the front of our home where we can sit and have a cuppa, with *finally* something to sit our cups on!Not the best of works, but I'm happy with it!
