My camera is not working. It has a defective imaging part that needs to be replaced. Fortunately, the manufacturer will pay to fix it – but that means I have to be without it while it's getting a part transplant. So, I’ll work with some photos I already have until I am camera-ready again.
I had planned on posting a few fall projects – but… :-)
Here’s a fun project I worked on some time ago – a mosaic watering can without mosaic pieces or grout! It's created with decorative scrapbooking paper and a great little product called Dimension Magic.
Cut the paper pieces to resemble mosaic chips.
Brush on Modge Podge to adhere the paper pieces to your surface. (You can “mosaic” tiles for coasters, glass votive holders, tops of benches – basically any flat, smooth surface – the possibilities are endless.)
After you’ve adhered all of your cut paper pieces, brush a top coat of Modge Podge over the entire surface. Let dry.
Dimension Magic is then used straight from the bottle (it comes out perfectly when you tip the bottle upside down – no need to squish or squeeze the bottle). Cover only the paper pieces with Dimension Magic (not the background surface).
Depending on the size of the pieces, I generally outline the paper piece with the Dimension Magic and then fill in the middle areas. The liquid will level itself and fill in small spaces.
Let dry well.
I often apply a second coat of Dimension Magic to give a fuller, more ceramic look to your paper.
