I was going to do a full on tutorial for you guys, but I don't know if anyone would really want one. It is super time intensive. But here are a few tips if you ever decide you want to mosaic on paper-mache (there are tons of cute paper mache forms out right now, Michaels has a whole aisle of them):
- Make sure you seal the paper mache really well. I used two coats.
- Don't use tile, because it is too heavy. Stained glass works well.
- Take your time. Move your piece around a lot so everything looks even.
- When grouting, use a "dry" grout. Meaning don't mix a lot of water into the grout.
If you have any how-to questions, just ask. I'll be glad to answer.Also head on over to Living with Lindsay and check out what all the other cheapskates, I mean frugal, creative women are doing!:)
