Metal beads are a wonderful mosaic material, adding texture and detail that is just not found in mosaic tiles. This project demonstrates how you can incorporate metal beads with our stunning Tiny Ceramic Tiles to create a stunning piece.
This project is really very simple, it's the choice of materials and layout that add the detail, texture and interest. Materials used in this project include the following selection:
Tweezers - a must when you are working this small!
Paint brush - for applying adhesive (optional)
Gloves, containers, rags or sponge for grouting
The process simply involves adhering the tiles to the MDF base, I started from the outside edge and worked inwards making sure to keep straight lines. Play with different layouts and placements of tiles to ensure the pattern fits well. Allow the adhesive to cure for 24 hours then grout.
