Finally started with mosaic. Not far,but wanted to let you know I have started. Black and brown so far. The flowers to the side are to go on later. Also added a pic of the concrete block I covered. The BB is sitting on it for now but they really don't go together. Still worry they will pop off later. The silicon method makes everything so secure but using thinset is a lot less messy. Haven't been shopping for mortar yet so went ahead and using full contact cement. Yep, hope it works!
