Mosaic Bathroom at OzMosaics Studio Project

MOST AMAZING MOSAIC ENSUITE BATHROOM WALL MURALS!
Sandy dares to be different and goes wild with mosaics.  Her students and guests have seen it develop over the last twelve months and the reaction has been most satisfying!
The bathroom floor mosaic and 2 floor to ceiling shower mosaic walls, shower floor and hobs were hand cut and installed by Sandy.  Final photos will be shared in due course as more mosaic features are to come.  I hope you enjoy the photos and the "making of this mural" will be in the MOSi online school (in due course).

Finally, I have finished the mosaic ensuite in the OzMosaic Studio apartment.  It looks fabulous and is so completely "over the top!" mosaic madness.  I truly let my mosaic heART run with the design and I am so happy to have included my mosaicking mum's mosaic lizards and a sunflower.  The photo above shows some large slabs of Dynasty thin smalti slab tiles, which are my favourite tile at the moment!  I will use one of my original mosaic tips and tricks to take off edges of some glass mosaic tile shards (the bottle shaker, yes it was my mosaic tip and is used all around the world!).

Using a specialty adhesive from Laticrete, I will press the treated shards into the adhesive for an incredible mosaic grout effect!  Hopefully, I will get this done when I complete some mosaic tiling the mosaic studio kitchen!  Always something on the go!

michelle1michelle-br2The glass door panels work so well and the mosaic tiled floor is such a happy place to be!  We are waiting on the hinges for one of the door frames, once we receive the missing hardware, we will put on the front shower glass door.

 

 However,  our current guests are using the shower anyway and loving it.  Hard to wake up in a bad mood with a funky shower like this to wash away any worries!

If you would like to mosaic your bathroom come and learn to mosaic with me or commission me to make your bespoke mosaic artwork!  I have the most incredible installation method and design ideas, so book a consultation and have the mosaic bathroom or mosaic mural of your dreams!  Need a mosaic for your pool?  Everyone wants to know about Sandy's special mosaic method for pools, but at the moment it's a secret!  Sandy has lots of amazing new mosaic tips and tricks to share in due course - methods to transfer patterns to mosaic substrates, pool mosaics, easy shower installations etc - all will be revealed in due course!

OzMosaics has a wonderful range of mosaic glass tiles for your mosaic murals - learn to mosaic and have fun decorating or renovating your home, your style, your mosaics.  Mosaics are a good investment and made professionaly will last and last.  However, if you wish to move your mosaic or take it with you, Sandy has the perfect installation methods!  So exciting and so much more to come!

 Mixing glass smalti tile, with mosaic vitreous tiles, ceramic, porcelain tile, mirror, pebbles rocks, found objects makes for mosaic diversity!
Whether you smash, crash, drop the tesserae for creative cuts or carefully shape, nip and nibble every piece, bring out your creativity.  If you have tried painting, pottery, ceramic and still are yearning for the perfect creative art form, mosaics will suit you as it's a never-ending journey of discovery.
Visit OzMosaics, enjoy a happy, busy, informative and hands on workshop and let your mosaic addiction begin!


Ps! Thanks to one of my best mosaic mates for giving me the black and white spot tiles to use in the bathroom.  Maureen, I was really inspired by the tiles and thanks once again!  To think this bathroom was going to be all green and white featuring fern leaves!   
I can't wait to stART on the bedroom, hallway, cupboard doors, lounge room and kitchen in the mosaic apartment!  Dave may regret telling me "Yes dear, you can go wild with mosaics in the downstairs flat".  Yipee!!!
