Mosaic is an ancient and exciting decorative art form. This colourful book contains over 300 motifs to copy and develop, whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced mosaic artist. A comprehensive techniques section gives step-by-step instructions on everything from choosing materials and selecting colour combinations to cutting and grouting tiles. The directory features a wide range of themes, from animals, birds and marine life to flowers, cultural symbols and children's motifs. Clear designs are easy to scale and copy. A gallery section shows how the motifs can be used to decorate cearmics, furniture and accessories, or be works of art in their own right.
