This is a very clear book with clear instructions for beginning mosaicists. Projects are beautiful and very inviting, more complex than a beginner might expect. (Look at fish on the cover, with wavy background lines). My only complaint is that they tend to be very large - wall panels rather than trays.
If you know nothing about creating mosaics and would just like to dip your toe in the water, this is the book for you. It explains the major construction techniques and walks you through 8 very simple projects. It's a book to start with if you are intimidated by larger, more complicated texts or you don't feel you'll want to strive beyond the easiest, most basic mosaic building techniques (for instance, this would be a good book for middle schoolers or to walk a child through a mosaic project). I'd give it five stars except for my belief that it will be too basic for most readers who will quickly want to ventrue beyond this book's limits...so why not invest a few more dollars and pick up a more comprehensive book that will meet your needs for hundreds of projects to come?
For the beginner, or the artist that has been out of practice for awhile, this little book comes in very handy. Good information, excellent pictures, and easy to understand. I recommend this book as a good reference book for the mosaic artist library.
This is a great book if you are just starting to learn the craft of mosaics
I loved the section that explained the supplies that would be needed for beginner projects. There are only a couple of projects that I plan on making but the book is a great source of information.
I was disappointed with this book that it did not contain more projects and patterns. I could get more patterns free on Google.It was only 47 pages long! More info would have helped, too. Photography was good, however.
We are very pleased with the patterns in the book. We're using it to plan our next two projects. For two rank beginners it' a big help!
Book was ordered to learn basic Mosaic. It is easy to understand and have done a few projects. Came fast and was packaged right.
