Colors Are The Universal Language
There are times a mosaic piece calls for a special color and texture, ones that can not be found anywhere but in one's mind.
For times like this I use glass paints to create what is needed. I find glass paints to be a treat and a world of infinite creativity and play.
First comes a layer of texture/pattern
Then a first coat of paint
Next I add a coat of a darker/lighter color, depending on a desired end result.
Once I reach a desired tone/hue, the painted glass goes into the oven to be baked for 10-15 minutes at 160 degrees (Celsius), then cool off and let the paint set.
All new bright colors for my next mosaic piece
Off to find some base material...
