My First Mosaic Pot

Poor baby...my humble first mosaic pot required some repair work that I finally got to yesterday, after it sat for months on the work table.


For some reason the clay pot had some disintegration problems along the rim. White cement to the rescue.

















Ahhh, much better. A second lease on life. Tomorrow I'll replant it.

How did you start collecting pieces for the mosaic work? Do I have to break some of my plates (LOL)? Seriously, I love your pots...hugs, Julierose

Thank you, all , for stopping by. Julierose, you can use old plates, especially if you have a good thrift store nearby. I use wall tiles, for which I sand off the bumps on the back first (pain in neck), because this is a country with little wood but lots of tiles. I have a lot left over from my own and friends' building and renovation projects. Once in awhile, I go buy tiles if I want certain colors. If you click on the "mosaic plant containers" label in the sidebar at MulticoloredPieces, you will find more.

Thanks for your info! I have a lot of plain terracotta pots that I want to tile, so I will be on the hunt for old dishes...hugs, Julierose
