Remember when I told you my birdbath had fallen and was broken here, and my dearest hubby repaired it, and that I had a surprise for you?
I decided to mosaic it! I always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to mosaic the birdbath, and now this was the perfect time to do it.
See the pink rose and the two little white dove.
Here's how it looked when hubby was repairing it.
Then he secured it with bungy cords, added more concrete and smoothed it out.
Then we waited till it dried.
Now for the mosaics.
Let me remind you that I am definitely not a professional when it comes to doing this. I am rather clumsy, actually.
I cut and broke the pieces of glass and porcelain. I added a few marbles, added the rose and the dove, and then glued everything on with tile glue that I bought at Michaels.
Next for the grout.
I had this grout for another project and it was white, so when I mixed it up I added a little bit of black acrylic paint to make it more gray.
Then I put on my rubber gloves and smeared it all around and in the cracks and then smoothed it out. I'm not sure, but I think I may have put too much grout on.
Trial and error, I say.
