Looking for a pattern

mattie_2008May 26, 2008

I'm interested in making a mosaic of a Mexican street scene but I have looked everywhere I can think of and can't find a pattern, or even something close I can later tweak. Unfortunately, I am not an artist in the sense that I can draw somwthing from my mind, so I do need a picture I can at least go from. Is there anyone out there that can help me? Thanks

Matte, sometimes doing an image search in google can help

Ditto to that. Just go to the Google homepage and click on image and type in mexico painting or some such, and you'll get something good I'm sure! I do all kinds of googles...ponds are my latest eye candy!!!lol!

Thanks for the tips, there was a pretty good one there that maybe I can adapt to fit my needs. Still want to look further, maybe on Stained Glass sites (other than this one I mean). Has anyone tried to mosaic on top of plexiglass? This project will hang on an outside wall (in Mexico) with a light behind it. Should work, right?
Thanks again, love all your projects, I have done alot of mosaic work in Mexico but haven't any pictures. Better do something about that, I guess.
