Mosaicists of every level will delight in this new sourcebook, featuring page after page of inspiring motifs. Arranged by theme - from animals, birds, and marine life to flowers, cultural symbols, and children's motifs - these striking designs are easy to copy and scale. There is a comprehensive techniques section that offers step-by-step instructions on everything from choosing materials and selecting colour combinations to cutting and grouting tiles, while a gallery section demonstrates how the motifs can be used to decorate ceramics, furniture, and accessories - or be works of art on their own. Written by a mosaic artist of international standing, this is a rich source of ideas for all who aspire to this ancient, enduringly beautiful art form.
About the Author
Teresa Mills' previous book was "The Mosaic Artist's Source Book."
A huge variety of patterns and ideas for all your mosaic projects. Excellent beginners book with easy to follow techniques and basics, but also inspirational for more advanced mosaic artists. A well presented hard cover book, great illustrations and easy to follow scale patterns. If there was any book you needed for mosaic ideas you, this is the one to buy, it truly is a Mosaic Bible.
THis really is a bible. It has good answers to questions and good for a beginner or for a teacher of mosaics. It's one that is always picked up by my students and I take it everywhere that I teach. It's quite small which is handy and well laid out. Good designs for numbers, letters and things such as cats, dogs, fish etc. Would recommend this book highly for those who are starting out or already mosaicing
It was great instruction for indoor mosiacs, but I'd also like to find a good book on outdoor mosaics to do ome edging around my patio & some pavers. good book though. my email is email@example.com (if you can reccomend an outdoor book)
