This has become a signature class here at Cinderella Mosaics. Mosaic florals are made from a combination of glass mosaic backdrops and found objects that substitute for flowers.
Please bring a frame you love with the glass intact. You will be working directly on the glass. Your frame size will depend somewhat on how much material you have collected to put into your arrangement. I suggest no larger than a 11″ x 13″ or around that size if you wish to finish the project. Alternatively, you can do 2 smaller ones – 5″ x 7″ or 4″ x 6″.
Day 1 – we will complete your backdrop and vase. Be thinking about your color scheme. We will also start preparing your items for your bouquet, removing bulky pins, etc. and laying out your arrangement. Grouting can start if the glass is dry.
Day 2 – we grout and adhere your “flowers” to complete your arrangement. This is where you will learn about the various adhesives and methods for layering and using “filler” beads and jewels to bring your floral to life.
Please bring items to make your bouquet – jewelry, vintage brooches, beads, earrings, anything that could be used to look like flowers. Now is the time to empty out all those drawers filled with your treasures or make use of the old jewelry you haven’t known what to do with. Since the arrangement itself won’t be grouted, you can use materials of all kinds for your flowers – plastic, leather, metal, wood, shells, pearls. fabric, etc., you name it!! I have incorporated buttons, knobs, shower rings, coasters, ceramics, belt buckles- let your imagination go wild!! I will provide a big grab box of filler baubles and beads, the stained glass, glue and grout. I will also have some interesting things for sale.
