People love making my Moon Gazing Hare design when they come to my studio workshops, so I decided to put a kit together to make this gorgeous 24cm square art mosaic.
It has lots of wonderful indigo iridescent tiles in the sky, various greens some glittery, some glossy, some matt, some iridescent, the hare is a gloss brown and he has little lines of ballchain picking out his curves.
In this kit you will learn:
The order in which to work to complete the design.
When to use keystone cuts to follow a curve.
How to use ball chain.
How to converge two lines into one.
How to use 2 colours of grout.
This kit is aimed at either confident crafters or those with mosaic experience due to there being a lot of cutting required and dexterity needed. It will take around 6 - 8 hours to complete. I have provided a comprehensive 6 page guide with step by step instructions and pictures to follow.
The kit provides all the mosaic materials, tiles, glue, grout, gloves, 10mm thick plywood base with template drawn on.
Please note you will need to provide the following:
Dust mask ( recommended for grouting)
Safety glasses (recommended to wear whilst cutting tiles)
Small bowls for mixing grout
**WHEELED MOSAIC NIPPERS!!!

6 page instruction pack
