I am often asked if mosaics can be displayed outdoors. The answer is normally unfortunately not. This is due to the materials as they need to be able to stand up to our British weather. Wooden bases are not suitable for outdoor display as overtime they will absorb moisture, swell and cause the tiles upon them to 'pop' off.
With this in mind I have created a mosaic using materials which are suitable for outdoors. This includes an acrylic base and waterproof PVA and all the tiles are made from glass.
This bright yellow acrylic sheet will hang beautifully in a tree and the back as well as the front will add colour to the garden all year round.
This mosaic kit is fun and easy to do and watch the online video to give extra confidence in the whole process.
When completed this mosaic is suitable for indoor or outdoor display due to the great acrylic base which is waterproof.
