Mosaic Birds

2015-11-03 14.54.16

I very rarely consider doing anything animal based so this Mosaic is a first for me. I went to a local stained glass business and brought some amazing colours to experiment with.

I find working on mesh rather than directly onto the chosen surface  gives me the option of where it will be placed. 2015-11-10 15.01.50

This is the finished bird design, I have taken inspiration from Mexican folk art..Now I need the slate!

When I made this house number I decided to apply the design to the plastic mesh so that I could then decide where to position the design on to the slate. It was my first time making a number and I quite like the overall look.With a simplistic leaf design.
