"Mixed-Media Mosaics" uses polymer-clay and mosaic-tile work as a new and exciting platform for mixed-media/collage artists. It helps readers learn to craft highly textural and vividly coloured icons, boxes, tables, items of personal adornment and more, using a combination of manufactured and handmade tiles. It also contains techniques for creating the tiles such as painting and glazing, stamping, embedding items like beads and buttons, mixing pigments and mica powders with clay, adding metallic leaf, creating molds, combining the handcrafted tiles with traditional mosaic tile, grout alternatives and more. In addition to learning techniques for making their own tiles, readers discover helpful processes for working inspiration (such as an homage to a loved one or a memorable getaway) into their tile-work, using personalization techniques such as stamping words or adding personal ephemera and found objects.
