New mosaic project

My pony wall that hides my pool equipment is boring.  I have decided to correct this problem.  I got a bunch of stained glass from my sister, and I am putting it to good use!

I started out kinda overwhelmed.  I didn’t know what glass to put where.  I would walk into my studio, stare at it and walk out.


My friend had the brilliant idea to take photos, put it on the computer, print it out then cut out the pieces so I could picture it.  She even did it for me.


I am doing this one on a backer board so I can work in my studio instead of out in the weather.



I have this sticky mesh for projects, but some of the glass here was transparent and I didn’t want to see the mesh through it.  So I had to hand transfer the pieces to mortar.




Ya know, no matter how passionate you are about your art, sometimes this stuff gets tedious.  Not gonna lie.


So that is how far along I am at this point!  I will keep giving you updates as I go.  I’m pretty excited, this is only one section.  By far  my most ambitious mosaic yet!
