Summer Craft - Mosaic Mirror

 

The technique of mosaic was already being used in ancient history. It is simply the assembly of pieces such as glass, marble, ceramic, porcellan, stones, etc... to produce a new pattern on objects such as wall murals, buildings, artworks, and much more. Today the technique is still being used. Especially in the Mediterannean areas of southern Europe and in the Middle East, you can see wonderful examples of this craft technique.

 

 

Mosaic Craft - Mosaic Mirror
It is so easy to learn and every day objects such as wood, vases, glass, pottery, etc... can be altered into treasures that will be cherished for a long time. Glass nuggets are uncomplicated to use for projects such as the one above but you can create designs and pictures using broken pieces of pottery and tile just as well.

For this project you will need:

- mirror with wooden frame (from Ikea)
- glass nuggets in color of choice, mosaic tiles or broken pieces of ceramic or porcellan
- grout mixture in white or beige
- plastic gloves
- old plastic bowl and spoon
- mosaic or jewel glue
- masking tape

 

 

Instructions:

1. Add masking tape to the outside wall of the mirror and also to cover the complete mirror surface. This will protect them from the grout.
2. Follow the tutorial mosaic tutorial to learn how to adhere the stones and add the grout mixture.
3. Let project dry overnight and then remove the masking tape.
