Mosaic Mesh Method - Sandy Style!
Book into OzMosaics Coorparoo mosaic workshop to learn all about the mosaic mesh method in a fabulous, fun and friendly mosaic atmosphere.   Sandy has refined this method over the last 20 years to bring you the best tips and tricks.  
Why use the mosaic mesh method?

- You may work over a design.Draw or print your design on paper, cover with plastic and draw outline on mesh if necessary for a better view.
You don't need to draw your design directly onthe substrate (base). This saves much time.

-The tiles (tesserae) are adhered directly onto fibreglass mesh which is then set into a bed of cement based adhesive.

You are fabricating your mosaic using the direct method on the mesh.

- Make easy mosaic edits!  It's easy to change the colour or shape of your tesserae! Just lift off mesh and replace, reshape etc.
- Work in mosaic jigsaw-style segments and appliques.
  Cut the mesh into sections before you start the mosaic or cut down after you have completed the mosaic on the mesh.

- Work away from the project location. 
 mosaic can be prepared in your work environment and then cut down and transported to the site for installation. 
 -It's great for mosaics which are vertical or in difficult to access areas  - splashbacks, pool walls, large tables, mosaic murals, floors, fireplaces etc.
- Multiple individuals can work on the same mosaic easily. Great for community and school projects.
- You will love working in the mosaic mesh method. 

What glue do you use and how do you install it easily?

Would you like to curl and furl your mesh mosaics?
Sandy has many mosaic secrets to share in her workshops.
Come and learn at Studio OzMosaics where we are continually improving mosaic techniques - it's continual innovation at Studio OzMosaics as Sandy has so much experience working with small and large scale mosaic on mesh projects.
