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. Warning - THIS IS A CRAFT KIT AND NOT A TOY This kit contains small parts. Choking hazard. Not suitable for under 3s Suitable for over 8s - adult supervision required at all times.

What you will need
You will need a disposable tub to mix the grout - an old yoghurt pot or margarine tub would be perfect.
Hi, I'm Diane the artist behind China Petals. I've been making mosaic from china for a number of years and love the idea of turning something old and unwanted into something beautiful and treasured again. I love teaching people the joys of recycling old china and seeing them become more confident in their abilities during my workshops. I have designed a range of kits which people can do at home. All my kits come with full step by step instructions and an accompanying tutorial video.
