well, i may have bitten off more than i could chew w/ my first attempt at eggshell mosaic! I aquired this old metal desk from an old warehouse. It had a shallow "lip", where the metal side wrapped round...i instantly thought it would be perfect for a great mosaic with an intricate design. Although, i chose to do a split-leaf philodedron leaf, it is still waaaay tedious. Heres a few pics for anyone who cares to share my progress. I have about 15 hours in it so far. I plan on putting green glass seed beads in the veins.. i think, i will have to make a test. I tried crushed green glass wine bottles... No good. Thanks for looking and if you have any input, I am open for all suggestions , or tricks of the trade, that some of YOU may already have mastered. NO, Its not for sale.Ha Ha .argh..
