Super newbie! Hello.
I got the brilliant idea that I wanted to make a mosaic out of something I had designed years ago. Ive never done a mosaic before but i did do my kitchen backsplash! :) I didn't have to cut tiles for that though.
I've done a lot of online research and got a sheet of wood (substrate), and some E6000 adhesive (I was originally going to glue onto glass then changed my mind)... Tomorrow I'm headed to the local stained glass store hoping its not too expensive! And then to get grout and a wheeled nipper.
My question is how difficult is it to get relatively straight lines with the glass nipper? Also on the other end of the spectrum, I have to do the silhouette of a crow in flight that's only about 3" wide. Not detailed but I'd like it to look like a crow! Feathers, beak... Is it very difficult to cut and piece together the shape you want?
I'm certain I'll have more questions. Thanks in advance. I'll post pics if not a complete failure. :)
