Newbie Has Some Info.

I am new to learning the Mosaic Arts. My Son went to an art show at the Dallas TX Arboretum. Barbara Dybala had her mosaic lines on display. For all I know she is already on this forum. I searched her web site and she has some lovely pieces. My son said her large Orb's can cost up to $6,000. (???????) Anyway that put a lot of fuel to my desire to learn the art. susie

Very interesting. Her designs are simple, and she has helpers. What a wonderful life!!! Thanks for posting the site, SUSIE. Yep - one of these days, I'm gonna build an orb.

Yeah Slow the only helpers I have are the 2 grandkids, who as we all know can be way more help then anyone needs!!! Gotta love em though!!! Yeah I gotta get me a BB...someday!!!
Susie I think the Fairy Tree is just too cute...the Orb's are nice but no way I'd pay $6,000.00 for one!!! I gotta say I think the one Daisy just posted is way pettier!!!

Great site Susie. Thank you for sharing it. I love it all. Especially the mural on the wall and the orbs...I found the directions on how to make the concrete spheres and just yesterday I bought the beachball to use as a mold to build on...now I might have to mosaic them too. Going to have to get busy or the projects are going to build beyond control.

If my neighbors woke up and saw my yard full of orbs they would go to their clean/almost empty garages and get their pitchforks (My garage is always full to overflowing). I love the Orbs too!!!! I have to say that I have never driven by a home who had a huge orb. They are gorgeous. Oh but we cant have just one. Nope. Decorate in 3's, all different sizes. Then try to weed-eat around them. lol

Micki, What are the basic steps? It would be a neat community project depending on how well it would hold up to public punishment.

Susie, Here is the link to the site that I found the instructions on how to make the spheres. It seems to have all the info you should need to make the orbs.
