Mosaic florals are made from a combination of glass mosaic backdrops and found objects that substitute for flowers.
Please bring a frame you love with the glass intact. You will be working directly on the glass. Debra suggests no larger than a 11″ x 13″ or around that size if you wish to finish the project. Alternatively, you can do 2 smaller ones – 5″ x 7″ or 4″ x 6″.
Day 1 – we will cut the glass for your background and vases and glue those down. Be thinking about your color scheme. We will also start preparing your items for your bouquet and layering your arrangement out. Grouting can start if the glass is dry.
Day 2 – we grout and adhere your “flowers” to complete your arrangement. There will still be time to finish the background from Day 1 and still grout so no worries!
Please bring items to make your bouquet – jewelry, vintage brooches, beads, earrings, anything that could be used to look like flowers. Now is time to empty out all those drawers filled with your treasures!! Debra will bring “fillers” like baubles and beads, glass, glue and grout. Since the arrangement won’t be grouted, you can use materials of all kinds for your flowers – plastic, leather, metal, wood, shells, pearls. fabric, etc., you name it!! Debra has incorporated buttons, knobs, shower rings, coasters, ceramics, belt buckles- let your imagination go wild! You will receive instruction on glass cutting, different types of glass adhesives and grout.
