MOSAICS

Objects around the home can be simply decorated with mosaic patterns, using pieces of broken pottery- These can be glazed or unglazed. According to choice. Mount the pieces on the chosen base with tile cement and then fill the cracks with grouting.

If using a flower pot for the base, build up the mosaic and then paint the rim with two coats of white emulsion. Next, take some artist’s oil paint of the same colour as the mosaic and mix a dab of it with polyurethane varnish. Paint the rim with the mixture to give it the look of real glazed pottery. The white line on the pot illustrated was added freehand as a final decorative touch.
