Making Hand Mirrors : Gluing Mosaic Tile on a Hand Mirror


Now, we’ll show you how to transfer your mosaic
pieces onto the base. I’ve traced the heart with, I have a blue line here, I don’t know
if you can see it. And, we’re going to transfer the pieces around the heart shape first, because
they?re the most important parts of the design. So, you want to put on a good amount of adhesive
and place it just outside the line of the heart. You don’t want to come up too far because
when we’re grouting it, you want the grout to overlap and come just to the line of the
heart. So, just work your way around putting the adhesive on. Now, if you find you have
a thinner, some of your crockery is thinner and some is thicker. So, the thinner piece
of crockery you want to put on more adhesive to kind of build up underneath and so it will
be more level with the piece that’s thicker. And, just move all the way around the heart,
placing your crockery in approximately the same place and then we’ll fill in with the
other pieces later.

    What did you use to glue the mirror on? I dont want to use mortar because I know the backing of the mirror could slowly over time peel off and then the mirror will pretty much no longer be a mirror.
