"A comprehensive guide to mosaic techniques and design."

Mosaics enhance everyday objects, revive decors and can be long-lasting works of art. Versatile, strong and wonderfully expressive, one of the appeals of mosaic is its ability to defy time.

The Complete Mosaic Handbook is a comprehensive guide to basic and advanced techniques and design of mosaic art. The book includes step-by-step instructions for thirty practical projects for mosaic artists at every level of experience. Each project is conveniently rated by cost, time and difficulty.

Projects range from the simple to the sophisticated and include: Place mats and coasters Beaded picture frame Outdoor planter Garden path Fruit platter Portrait Jewelry box Glass vase House numbers

The projects employ a wide variety of materials from traditional tile, glass and stone to found objects. The text is concise and jargon-free with full color photographs explaining each step. Valuable advice includes tricks of the trade and design tips for avoiding common mistakes.

Also featured is an extensive gallery of mosaic art styles throughout history: Ancient Greece, Byzantium, Renaissance, then on to contemporary styles such as Arts and Crafts.

Easy-to-follow, foolproof and beautifully illustrated, The Complete Mosaic Handbook is as inspiring as it is instructive.
