Summary

The projects will all be small, easy to make and imaginative, and will appeal to a broad market. The aim is to make them accessible to all ages and abilities, thereby attracting people who are new to mosaics, love the designs and simply want to have a go, as well as more experienced mosaicists looking for new ideas. The ‘user-friendly’ materials and techniques that the author uses also makes them ideal projects for children, under adult supervision.
The book will include a broad range of designs, in different shapes and styles and using different materials - no glass will be used because of the health and safety issues. Each project will be accompanied by an alternative version, used following the same method but using different materials, colours, etc.
The emphasis of the projects will be on the designs themselves, and will include several different ways of displaying the mosaics, e.g. as fridge magnets, wall hangings, coasters, mirror frames, jewellery and paperweights.
Aimee’s work is characterised by her new and innovative use of different materials within her mosaics - stones, beads, old jewellery, fabric scraps, sequins, feathers, buttons, coins, millefiori, glitter sand, etc. - all of which are readily available from craft stores, online mosaic suppliers, or simply sourced from charity shops, or collected while you’re out on a walk! The author will be able to provide a list of suppliers, and may also be able to supply some materials herself via her website www.mosaicmadromans.com. The method used by the author is the ‘direct method’, which is the simplest method for making mosaics, and involves fixing the tiles and other items directly to an MDF base using strong PVA glue, then grouting when dry.
