Not only the pictures of art are valuable, but also the explanations. English is not my mother tongue, and even so, I could understand most of the book, and then search for the words I couldn't.
I wish this book would be translated to spanish!!!
I would definitely recommend this book to any mosaic artist, either if it's a novice or not. I thank the author for giving us the opportunity of reading such a valuable material.
Then it shows in detail what tools you need and how to use them for mosaic projects. It describes the glues and the kinds of material you may be using: tessere, smalti, broken china etc. And then there are projects you can do to gain skill.
I was looking for a book that had a more in-depth approach and this is it. I would recommend it to anyone interested in mosaics. Even if you don't do any projects, it expands your knowledge of the artform.
I come from an art background and was interested in using mosaics for practical purposes like the garden. I also wanted to use the broken beads left over from making lampwork beads and this technique seems to be ideal for that.
