Mosaic Garden Projects: Add Color to Your Garden with Tables,
Fountains, Bird Baths, and More
by Mark Brody with Sheila Ashdown
“Templates and tool lists are provided…and the reader is led through a maze of tesserae, substrates, adhesives, grouts, and the tools of the trade, such as clippers and nippers. These projects, suitable for those about to take a mosaic class or those who want a manual to refer to, are suitable for all skill levels.”-Publishers Weekly
Mosaic Garden Projects applies the art of mosaic to both functional and decorative pieces for the garden. This hands-on guide includes a primer on the fundamentals of mosaic, with information on tesserae, substrates, adhesives, and the three different mosaic methods, direct, double direct, and reverse. Also in this book you will learn new products and techniques which allow you to build the artwork you always dreamed of.
The 25 step-by-step projects build on the basics and are arranged in order of difficulty. The book begins with simple projects, such as address numbers, bird feeders, and stepping stones, and ends with more involved pieces, including a jeweled frog, pagoda, and orb fountain. Project templates are included along with instruction on how to scale each project. Mosaic Garden Projects is for gardeners, crafters, DIYers, and anyone interested in adding unique décor to their garden.
