Steps to make a Mosaic
In the following days I will post tutorial how to make a mosaic (Chi Rho symbol) using direct method.
There are two basic methods of making mosaic: Direct Method and Indirect Method.
In the direct method tesserae are placed directly top side up on to a base or substrate.
Direct Method is most natural techniques of making mosaic. As the name implies, tesserae are fixed directly onto base. Advantage of this method is that tesserae are put into the glue with top side up, so artist can see finished product developing in front of his/her eyes.
These are 5 steps for making mosaic:
- Make or find design
- Select material (stone, glass,etc.)
- Choose base
- Choose appropriate glue
- Basic workflow
