Sinopsis: From the simplest paving slabs to the most intricate murals, mosaics are able to transform the most primitive motifs into works of art in its design and more importantly, palette. A frieze in brilliant seaside colours can evoke memories of holidays in the Mediterranean, while a jewel-toned mural fits as well in a museum as it does a living room home. "With Mosaic Craft", learn how a basic understanding of the techniques (and a little imagination) will help you create brilliant accents for your home. Contemporary mosaic artist, Martin Cheek has authored an indispensable primer for craft enthusiasts. This book begins with information on the tools you will need, and then covers all the basic techniques, with clear instructions and step-by-step photographs. The project section has 20 glorious designs that build in complexity as you progress in skill, from easy items that can be made in a few hours to more complex projects, taking a couple of days. Once you've mastered the basic techniques, discover how easy it is to bring mosaics into your home. From glass lanterns and gingham platters to a geometric mirror and a stylish side table, the projects will add a spectrum of colours to any home. Moreover, Martin incorporates millefiori to create detailed effects throughout his work. Each project is accompanied by a list of materials, step-by-step instructions and coloured photography. At the end of the book, a gallery of Martin's own work provides inspiration for your own designs, and there are templates and lists of suppliers. Discover the joys of creating tiled art with this complete guide to the art of mosaic crafting.
