DIY Glass & Stone Mosaic Spheres
Not every pretty creative project needs expensive supplies from a craft store. I get a huge kick out of using whatever I find
Orbs are a great shape with such huge design potential. Whether they are freeform or specific patterns, they always provide so many viewpoints & design options.
Glass nippers allowed me to cut the glass pebbles (flat marbles) in half to make them look less ‘manmade’.
An old mirror that was also losing it’s silvering became some nice blocks of sparkle.
To provide an extra reinforcement I’ve used some drywall fibre-glass mesh imbedded in the thinset mix.
The Thinset is applied in the places where I am adding the mosaic elements
The same Versabond Thinset is used for the grouting. Mix it again to peanut butter consistency and spread into all the crevices
Perfect Garden decor as rustic as you like... Make them sparkle!
Enjoy! I have many tutorials to make orbs...
