I'm being tempted to use a lot of beads, but does that make it more of a "beaded ball" than a "mosaiced ball"?

In my opinion it doesnt.I say it is still a mosaiced ball!!I guess you'll have to see what others say!!

Oh i was wondering the same thing. I want to use some beads and glass also. Can't wait to see what they say before i start mine. I was going to grout all of it anyhow. I say why not if it is grouted and mosaic anyhow.

RE: Spring Exchange Questions

we've never differentiated a mosaic isn't a mosaic by what tesserae is used here have we? I think mixed media encompasses using anything that can be used, no holds barred - as I said about polyclay! Go for it.

How about Okey Dokey Hokey Pokey?? I agree, anything that can be put down and grouted counts as mosaic. Workin' on those peeps!

RE: Spring Exchange Questions

Good..I was pretty sure beads were ok as we had always used them before and mine has beads too!!!

RE: Spring Exchange Questions

OK, don't want to appear to be trying to upset the apple cart...but does it HAVE to be grouted?? Not to give anything away, but I am considering something I may not grout, but would still be a mixed media mosaic kind of thing. I'm not completely settled on my idea, so need to know before I do. Thanks!

RE: Spring Exchange Questions

I'm not sure grout makes a mosaic. I mean heck Laurie Mika calls her stuff mosaics and she rarely grouts...

RE: Spring Exchange Questions

Kewl! Thanks! Makes my life easier! Actually if I don't grout it, it will be the first mosaic I HAVEN'T grouted. Ok, the first one that wasn't SUPPOSED to be grouted anyway. I am sitting here within a foot or two of several TBG's...
