Hello everyone! Ahhh.... where to start. I have worked with stained glass for 35 years, design sell and hobby.Now that I have retired as a draftsman I have been reading and viewing all the information your group has to share. Very inspiring. I have done a few mosaics with your unknowing help. Now I am intrigued with the cement sculting some are doing. I bought one sheet of lathe mesh and 60 lbs sand mix concrete. Decided to experiment with a large butterfly, wings each 26X20. A picture would be a lot of help to you about now but not sure figured that out yet. So, my problem is I worry the wings might not hold up to the weight of broken tile so I am thinking of using stainedglass. Usually use silicon with the glass but was hoping to use a thinset on butterfly to make it easier to smooth out bumps. Will thinset hold the stainedglass? The glass is so much thinner than tile I don't see how it would have much to grip to.
