The mask is a project for my brother. It is the project I am trying to finish w/the brown colors I am looking for. The mirror is a donation for a Private School auction and It is almost compete - I just have to place the mirror in the middle. I am trying to decide if I should bring the black design up on the mirror or not. It has hinges because it is an old cupboard door so if someone wants they can hang it in the kitchen or bathroom on their cupboard.

Here is a link that might be useful: mosaic pics

I must have worded wrong. I have not used them on this project yet. I want to finish the face with them I will post pics of the tiles I have left under the Colors post I did earlier.

The mirror is a good idea calamity. And I have plenty of shattered mirror as my neighbors drop it by whenever they break glass or mirror. I have not had much luck cutting glass. Do not have the funds to by the cool saw and the dinky glass cutter I bought is really hard to maneuver. I have a friend who dabbles in stained glass and he said he would teach me to use it better after the holidays - he is a Ups man!

Lovely mirror! astara-those tiles look on my computer like the colors that Hobby Lobby sells in a multipack at their stores. Its a brown mix of 4 different colors If you have one nearby its worth checking out.
