While it is possible to make some amazing art using glass and ceramics, the introduction of other materials can ignite creativity and produce unexpected results. Mixed media mosaics introduces a wide variety of materials, offering different textures, finishes, sizes, shapes and colours. It involves pulling together various materials & mediums to create a mixed media mosaic that is abstract, rich, tactile and exciting. If you are fascinated by texture and pattern and arranging seemingly unrelated materials into a cohesive whole, mixed media mosaics could be for you.
The key elements of mixed media mosaics are:
- Use of a wide variety of materials
- The placement of materials close to one another keeping the viewers interested in the mosaic.
- Grouting can be out of the question depending upon what materials are used. Instead, paint can be used as the backdrop for your mosaic.
- Layering of materials is key in creating detail
