There are basically two methods for creating mosaics: indirect or direct. With the indirect method, you place your little tile or glass pieces upside down, in reverse pattern, onto a sticky, removable base material such as Con-Tact paper. You place this design into a mold, such as a stepping stone mold, and then pour your cement into the mold, completely covering your design. Once the cement is dry, you remove the cast item from the mold, and remove the temporary base material to reveal the mosaic, right side up. With the direct method, tiles or pieces of glass are directly fixed top side up onto a base or substrate, and then grouted. Here we offer everything you need to get started in mosaics. Coaster and stepping stone molds, cement, grout, colorants, tools, patterns, books, and glass.
