Jack Mast Mosaics

After making a bunch of mosaics for other people, I decided to make one for my Gallery.

I'm very happy with the way it turned out.  I used a few elements that have used in other mosaics like the palm trees, sunset and water. The biggest new thing for me on this piece was the lettering.  I selected a cool funky font.  The lettering took a lot of time, but I like the way it looks.  Here are some time lapse photos of the cutting and gluing.

Starting the Cutting and Gluing

I ran out of white tiles during this project and had to order some more.  The place I buy them from is in Portland, OR.  It takes 8 days to receive the shipment so that set me back a little bit on this project.

Cutting and Gluing Complete
After completing the cutting and gluing, it was time to apply the grout.  For this project, I used black grout which really makes the sunset colors pop out.

Here is the sign hanging in my gallery.

Here is the final of "Jack Mast Mosaics".
