Mosaic Part Dos

After my last foray into mosaic work, I did learn a few things. This time around I created a pattern of the space between the stepping stones. Then I placed the mosaic pieces on the pattern before mixing and pouring the mortar. I also added more water to the mortar mix. This section came out a little better than the last. I think I'm getting the hang of it!

I made the pattern with a sheer tracing paper and taped the pattern to the plywood

It was a lot easier to transfer the tiles from the pattern rather than do it randomly

Here you can see the difference between the first session (right in front of the door) and today's effort.
