Step into the imaginative and inventive world of mosaics with authors Liz Atkins-Hood and Joy Bell. This truly inspirational book will fire up your creative spirit. Mosaic art is perhaps the ultimate in recycling, where you can turn "scraps" and "junk" into rich and beautiful works of art. This book shows readers how to look for and adapt ideas and designs from the world around them through paper, ornaments, photographs, fabric, paintings, jewelry, glass, tiles, pebbles, polymer clay and found objects to create fabulous mosaics. The enthusiasm for their craft comes through in every word, as Liz and Joy take you through the design stage and gathering materials to step-by-step instructions using the latest techniques, including the revolutionary glass and tile saw, which brings the "curve" to mosaics. And there are also lots of tips to guide the novice through the technical aspects of gluing and grouting. After reading this book you will be itching to get started, and will be able to produce beautiful and lasting artworks.
