I love Laticrete!

Applying the "mosaic tile fabric" to "upholster" my wooden chair.

Before stARTing any mosaic project, you need to be confident that you are using the best products on the market to ensure that all the hard work, energy and materials you pour into your mosaic - will all "stick together".



The photo shows the wooden mosaic chair, I included in my Brisbane City Council Tip Shop Competition.

The chair was first treated with Laticrete Hydroban (fast set, fast cure!).

Laticrete thinset was applied with a metal notched trowel to provide the adhesive for my gridded mosaic "fabric" .  OzMosaics stocks and sells Laticrete Products in sizes/quantities to suit mosaic artists.

Visit our online shop or contact us to visit our Studio Store by appointment.  
Enrol in an OzMosaics workshop to learn the art of mosaics and how to apply and use Laticrete products in your mosaic artworks.

The black and white mosaic glass  tiles were placed in OzMosaics grids with gold glitter tile inserts, forming the letters for the word "Bride".  

The SWALK (Sealed with a loving kiss) old white china ashtray was adhered to the back of the grouted Bridal Chair.

 

For over 13 years, I have been using Laticrete products for my mosaic installations, with confidence.

 

 

 

 

I like to create very "extreme mosaic art" whether it be an inground installation, a swimming pool mural, a tabletop, a mosaic wall mural or a huge flowers on a dressing table mirror.  

I use a huge variety of materials and Laticrete proves itself over and over again, as superlative, from waterproofing substrates, perfect adhesives for applying the tesserae, the best grout on the market and more.  

Thank you Laticrete for amazing products, incredible service and support and understanding my passion for mosaics.
