How To Make A Mosaic Wine Glass

 

This week I've been having a fantastic time exploring what you can make with tiny tiles! From mosaic jewellery to wine glasses, the possibilities are endless. I've always loved using tiny tiles; they are just so versatile (get is vers-a-tile), and over the years, I've done some amazing projects, including mosaicking my son's first shoe! Today I am sharing with you some of these projects.

If you're looking to make extra special Christmas presents, you can't go past giving someone a gorgeous handmade pendant or wine glass! We've got the instructions for both projects, so you can't go wrong.

Tiny tiles work amazingly well in most projects; their small size allows you to create intricate detail that you can't achieve with larger tiles.

Steps

1. Select your tiny tiles


2. Adhere The Tiles

Apply your clear drying tacky adhesive (E6000 or Clear Liquid Nails work well) small sections, so the adhesive doesn't dry out. Lay your tiles using a pair of tweezers.

Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to dry before grouting. Run your hand over the mosaic before grouting to ensure all tiles have adhered securely.

3. Grouting

When grouting, always wear gloves, as the grout will dry your hands out.

Mix a small amount of powdered grout with water, I mix my grout so it is a bit drier than normal. Once mixed, place a small amount of grout onto your tiles and rub it into the gaps between them. Once you have covered the entire mosaic, scrape off the excess and let it dry.

Wait until the grout has started to dry (the grout will become dull), and carefully clear off the excess grout with a moisture cloth and buff clean.
