Mosaic ball

Experimenting with mosaics on different surfaces.  I decided to try a styrofoam ball.

The first joke was on me, since the glue I used is pretty liquid-y and gravity grabbed those little pieces and they just ooooozzzeeed down the sides!  Tape fixed it.

The finished piece.  I am putting it in my garden, kind of to see what will happen.  Will weather be able to penetrate the grout and eventually ruin the styrofoam?  Only time will tell!
