This is a cement boot I just finished mosaicking after working on it for quite awhile. And it was the first thing to sell at my annual Christmas Open House last Saturday morning! Sorta sad to see it go, but happy for the sale.

RE: Mosaic Boot

I would love to hear about the process. It's a real boot, isn't it? Did you cover a real boot with concrete?


 o
RE: Mosaic Boot

That is FABULOUS. Love your colors and the ball chain. Wish that stuff wasn't so expensive.

SILVA: They have concrete boots in the garden section of Lowes. W/save a heap of trouble preparing a real boot for mosaics.

RE: Mosaic Boot

Slow...you are so correct! This is a cement boot I bought at a statuary place. And I used about 15 feet of ball chain! I order an entire roll of it from Ace Hardware and he sells it to me a little above cost. (Told him I could order it over the internet, but preferred to buy locally and would he sell it to me for the same cost. Worked!) I have about 15 hours of time into the boot but it was so much fun to do and I loved how it turned out.

OH!!!! Yes that is just to cool!!!!

RE: Mosaic Boot

Oh, thank you for that, BECKY. We have an Ace H. here. Gonna check it out to see if I can get the same deal. Where had you seen it on the net? Chris Emmert on Flickr uses miles of it and she posted a website for all sizes - link follows. I find it terribly expensive, and have resisted ordering it. It really does dress up a project. I was using BBs for a long time, but I can't find them copper coated anymore, and placing them one at a time was tedious. What size did you order?

Slow, will you check this out and tell me how the prices compare? I am interested in the black enamel-coated ones.

Here is a link that might be useful: McMaster Carr ball chain online

SILVA: Mark down the ones you are interested in buying, look on the link I posted, then on your link and compare. I'm so tired right now I barely know what day it is.

RE: Mosaic Boot

WOW that is an amazing piece of art! I'm not surprised it didn't last long. I know a couple of friends who would have killed for it. Gorgeous work!
