Leafy Mosaic table top, second stage

I used clear silicone to glue glass drops and ceramic pieces onto the glass centre. I will use black grout to fill the spaces in-between the glass drops.
I re-arranged the leaves. Tomorrow I can start glueing the pieces down. The edge tiles should be coming out the kiln now.
the black grout will change the effect a lot. be prepared for that.
A lantern hanging under the table, or a sunbeam will illuminate the centre of the table.
all ready to start sanding sharp edges and then sticking them down. This is the boring and slow part. I only manage small sections at a time. But doing things properly now saves a lot of hassle later.

Lots of work to do, and I am IMPatient, I dont want to wait any longer, I want to  finish this in time for the Leisure Isle crafts festival in 2 weeks time (I think)

the edge tiles are on, and the filling in begins.

    Absolutely beautiful - an inspiration.

  2. I love what you have done with this table. I would like to know if I can do something like this with my round wood table outside on my deck. Please if you can get me started I would love it. Thanks and I love all the pic.

  3. in reply to above, I would start by seeing if the base of the wooden table will allow you to cut a circle in the middle. Then add fibre cement board to the surface- as mosaicing onto wood is NEVER a good plan for deck furniture. Cut a hole in the centre of the fibre cement board as well, bigger than hole in wooden top. That creates a rebate for the glass to go in.
