Finished gluing the first medallion on this paint bucket.
This particular design requires time because so many pieces have to be trimmed and fit into place. The rows at the top appear deceptively simple (meaning, a pain in the neck to do).
Mosaicking is forgiving. The cement covers holes, bumps, dents, etc. Once the metal ridge is covered in cement, it becomes another design element. I'll add black coloring to the cement.
And then it's just a plant container...
