I love the beadwork too. If any one interested, there's an on-line course by Sharra Frank being offered. A little too rich for my blood, but here's the link if anyone is interested.

It appears that she's using the Apoxie clay as an adhesive base. What say you, NT?

RE: Quite Clearly Ocean -- more inspiration

yes that has become the standard for beading on mosaics now. I saw Doreen Bell use it on her pieces, easy way to cover the substrate in a like color ans stick the strings of seed beads on in rows. I think everyone is inspired by Betty Youngquist's work.

Waaaaaaay too expensive for my stinginess. Can buy the bezel and the clay and use my stash. Might just be ordering some of the Apoxie Sculpt soon.

Hi, I am the artist (Diana Maus) that created the Quite Clearly Mosaic. It's nice to see that that piece has gotten around the internet. Thank you all for the compliments.

I wanted to note that I use jewelry glue and place each bead separately. I don't do stringing or have a stringer. And I have never heard of Apoxie clay but I thank you for the clue. I will investigate it. I'm glad mosaic has made a comeback. I love Betsy's work too.

Hello Diana: Nice that you dropped in on our forum. Your work is outstandingly beautiful. I got lost in your writings this morning, and looking at you fabulous works. You write as beautifully as you mosaic. I'm amazed that you lay each bead individually. GOOD GRIEF - it must take you weeks, even months to finish a work as detailed as the subject of this thread. Not many artists share the secrets and techniques of their work. Thank you for telling us what you use and how.

Hi again... Beading isn't very different from gardening I think. It takes patience. But patience is time well spent when the outcome is beautiful right?

RE: Quite Clearly Ocean -- more inspiration

I know exactly what you mean. I was a flower gardner b/f I discovered mosaicing and until the old back problems forced me to hire it done. At age 78 I'm thankful to the Good Lord that I can still do what I do. If I had two more life times, I w/never run out of ideas/inspiration on all my hobbies. Lord, I don't have time to die - there's still too much I want to do.

RE: Quite Clearly Ocean -- more inspiration

Hello, Diana. I admire your art so much. Slow, you sound like me; I am fond of saying that if I lived to be a thousand, I might have time to do all that I want to do.

RE: Quite Clearly Ocean -- more inspiration

RE: Quite Clearly Ocean -- more inspiration
