My first project
loribee2 asked about current projects, so here's my first attempt. I posted my own thread because it could go on for a while.
Years ago I wanted to do a mosaic and, not knowing what else to do, I smashed a plate with a hammer. The pieces turned out too small and I was not happy with the result. I packed everything up and put it in a box until recently when I found this old trowel in my mom's garage and realized scale might be just right for all those tiny shards. I like the way this is working and am glad to get past the mess I made on the past attempt.
The plan is to cover the handle with mirror and glass pieces. So far I've applied some drywall tape around it. Now I think I need to put some mortar on that or do I just glue the pieces with Liquid Nails directly to the tape?
I'm going to string seed beads on thin nylon and wrap the stem of the trowel and the top on the handle.
