Expand your vision of mosaics, and choose from a range of techniques and materials for making 20 decorative items. With a little creativity, such "junk" as broken china - and other inexpensive and yet glittering supplies - can make beautiful pieces for your home and garden. Use silicone to apply art glass onto a translucent background for a uniquely shimmering look. Incorporate natural and found objects like fossils and bottles washed up on shore and polished by the sea. Projects include a "fish pond" table top adorned with rocks and glass; and iridescent whirlpool wall mirror; a special wall plaque to personalize a child's room; a mirrored tray; a 3-D decanter, and more.
