Here are the stages and results of a recent class I took through our community center. It was taught by a wonderful local mosaic artist Anita Damron.  We were given these 10″ sqaure wooden framed mirrors to use as out substraight. (the mirror is taped off for protection with masking tape) I used some metal finidings I had bought on a fall treasure hunt with friends to Slindys Indoor Flea Market in Culpepper. These were my starting points and you can see how the piece evolved from there. We were taught how to use the snippers and a hand held etcher and away we went, grouting and cleaning being the final steps. Loved this class and looking forward to doing more with mosics and found objects.
