Polymer clay mosaic

I bought myself the Mixed Media Mosaic book by Laurie Mika the other week and this is my first attempt at a mosaic. The photo does not do it justice though. The colours are much nicer in reality. Lots of pearl ex and lumiere paint was involved. While arty Renaissance style art is the usual central image for these mosaics, I put a photo of my old Sam in mine. I think this might be slightly addictive though. Making little tiles with as many different designs as you can imagine is a nice thing to do in quiet moments. I have to buy some more clay first.

Beautiful mosaic, esp. since it's your very first piece. Lovely!
