Add brightness, color, and magic to even the simplest of objects using the age-old art of glass mosaic. Almost any surface can be transformed quickly and easily by gluing pieces of cut glass in place and then filling in the gaps with cement. Packed with glorious full-color photographs of spectacular mosaics, this straightforward guide can help anyone to create a masterpiece. The history of mosaics is described, followed by information on choosing materials and supplies, and illustrated step-by-step instructions for six projects--including a terra-cotta bowl, a frame with a leaf design, and cheerful lids for small jars. An exquisite gallery of mosaic projects offers plenty of ideas and inspiration for making tables, jewelry, keepsake boxes, trays, flower pots, plates, trivets, and much more. 160 pages (all in color), 7 3/4 x 10 1/4. NEW IN PAPERBACK.
