Mosaic: Garden brick

IMG_7965

I am getting ready to start another large mosaic work.  So I am doing some practice pieces.  My garden is made of brick, so I thought I would just put some random mosaic art interspersed throughout the place.

When placing your pieces, be very careful that your mortar stays below the level of the mosaic.  Otherwise when you wipe the grout away, the mortar pops through.  I will try re-grouting this, and building up the height to cover the white mortar better.  In future pieces, I probably won’t have the mortar sit up so high in general, as well.

I like it.  A nice pop of color in a sea of bland brick.  I plan on doing more. 🙂
