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!
The 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!

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!!!
