(This is the bottom half.) First, I drew out a rough design–mainly the lines of the “sun” shape–with chalk, but pretty much winged it as I went along. Then I spread a thin layer of mortar in patches of about 2 x 2 feet and pushed in my mosaic pieces, then made another patch, and so on. When I was done, four large men carried it to the back. Yes, it weighed a ton, or more! Just so you know, I do not claim to be a “mosaic artist,” and this was my first effort of any scale.
and my husband. I don’t know what we will do if we ever move!!
