Mosaic of Fish

silvamaeNovember 23, 2012

I just finished grouting this one, 5.5 inches x 2 feet, stained glass on Plexiglass. If I upload the picture here, it is giant sized, so I will include a link to my blog.

Thanks, Nanatricia. It's the 1/4" Plexiglass. It works great. The thinner version has too much flex to be used as a mosaic substrate, but this 1/4" is perfect.

As always SilvaMae, your work is gorgeous! It's funny, we had a conversation at Thanksgiving about fish lips because my family members are all big fans of the movie "Mr. Limpet". Those were some fish lips! :)

These are beautiful! I'm sorry if you've said before and I missed it, but what do you do with them? Do you frame them?

Beautiful panel, SILVA. The blue stands out beautifully. Lots of texture in there too. I've never done a GOG/plexi - probably not patient enough to be sure and cover all the surfaces w/the adhesive, so I'd have major grout bleed. Nope - gonna leave that you all you pros.

Thank you, all. I will leave them as is and if someone buys one, they could have it framed. I will take them to another Open House, on December 8, and have them for sale. The first dragonfly did sell at the last Open House.

My house has lots of big windows and narrow wall spaces in between. So that's where they will hang if they don't sell. Please go back to my blog and see my latest, another dragonfly. There are two views, one with the light shining through, and one positioned against a wall facing the light. These look good either way, but different.

That's just plain danged beautiful, SILVA. I like it better w/the light shining through - all those beautiful colors really make a wonderful background for this piece.
