hardyplank crosses

oldcraftySeptember 13, 2010

Has anyone used hardyplank as a substrate for mosaics? A new shop opened up and she had some beautiful pieces. Lots were made to hang and she stated they were done on hardyplank so they were outdoor pieces and was sealed real good. They were very pretty. Would you just afix the tess with thinset and then grout? She did gorgeous welcome signs to hang. She also had mosaiced a flat piece of ??? and then framed it, and on a couple of the framed pieces she had a cross attached. Very impressive. Too bad I couldn't score some pics.......think she would have frowned on that!!!

I've used Hardibacker or Backerboard for substrates on my patio - picture follows. It's what is used in bathrooms and kitchens - a concrete-based material - comes in sheets of 4'X8'. Lowes sells a tool for scoring the board or you can use a box cutter knife. I used thinset and grout.
