72 of 72 people found the following review helpful Good instructions, great photos, May 2, 2000 By Angel Lee "Liocorno
Amethyst Moonstone" (Cleveland, OH United States)
    This review is from: The Mosaic Book: Ideas, Projects and Techniques (Paperback) This is a wonderful book for learning to
make a wide variety of mosaic tile projects. Clear, step-by-step instructions are both written and demonstrated with full-color
photographs. Sixteen projects include tables, frames, jewelry, containers, floors, and walls. There are also designs for outdoor
areas, as well as the kitchen & bath. Numerous pieces of other magnificent artwork are also displayed throughout the
book.There are over 30 great templates featuring many designs. Some include flowers, celestial elements, a large angel & a
mermaid. There are several animals including a unicorn, butterfly & dragon as well.My only wish is that a list of suppliers was
included, I found some of the materials difficult to obtain.

Beautiful projects, but ..., April 14, 2002 By S. Brand "sandra807" (United States)
     This review is from: The Mosaic Book: Ideas, Projects and Techniques (Paperback) The beautiful wall plaque on the cover
of this book was what sold me on it, but disappointingly for me, it's probably only one of two or three projects in the book I would
be interested in doing. There are photos of incredible work others have done such as pool bottoms, floors, kitchen cupboards,
an outdoor monument, fountain, grottoe, patios, pillars. They make your mouth water, but there are no directions for them...not
that most of us would attempt them anyway! The projects for us mortals are spaced in between these grandiose artworks and
include a casket notable for its artistic design, some jewelry items, frames, a beautiful birdbath, pots, a small shelf. One
important factor in keeping me from trying any of these is that although the instructions are adequate, they are not very inviting
to read due to their tiny print size, and the photographs could be larger and reveal more of the process. This would not be my
first choice in a mosaic book, but I'd still be tempted by that...
