Beautiful work! Couple quick questions - what is the working time for your thinset? And is it possible to use Unsanded mortar instead of thinset?
Thank you! working time is about 3 hours in the pot, about 10-15 minutes on the board. Get the longest working time possible and keep it covered when you aren't using it. Mortar is not a substitute for thinnest. It is not an adhesive. Kind regards
Hi - awesome! Where do you get your tiles? Also, what is the reason for gluing on the tiles with the underside facing up? Thank you for your response.
I source tile from all over the world. I do have a supplier list on my website under resources. The are glued face down as this project was done using the reverse technique so the floor would be flat.
Extraordinaria, su obra y su técnica. Quisiera saber si el papel sobre el que pegó las tecelas se quita o queda incluido sobre el soporte final
What's the advantage of gluing them to the paper first?
what is the tile on? plywood, wood, or ? painted surface? It is a uniform color so...? thankz
where do you all get mosaic tiles from? I havn't come across anything reasonable on the internet as yet, as a beginner I would like to start cheap on materials..any help would be great!!
Goodwill, ceramics and a hammer!
She does a beautiful pieces of art, amazing!
Hi Sonia! We met in Ravenna 2015. It was nice to meet you there. I already had your book at that time, but it was such a pleasure to see you and of course your mosaic there in Ravenna. It's such a different experience if you see a mosaic on a picture or if you really stand in front of a mosaic. I wish you all the best. Best regards from Slovenia.
+Robert Lisac My pleasure! Hope to see you in Spilimbergo!
Amazing work and I loved the speech at the convention. I now get a better idea of working intuitively. I find my best work happens that way. Some day I hope to go to a SAMA convention and be with all the other artists and learn even more. Thank you for these videos.
I LOVE your work! I found this when doing a Google search on what I could make out of a box of my absolute treasured glass things that were totally crushed in a move. I can't throw them out. I have too many memories, and treasure this stuff. So, you have inspired me! Thanks!
Minha mosaicista preferida, sou fã desta artista !! Quisera um dia poder fazer umas aulas com ela !!
Hermoso, saludos desde México
You have so jars of tiles - i'm guessing - with subtle color variations. How do sort them after you're done working? Or do you use everything you put on your work surface and not have to put any back? Beautiful work!
If it's obvious, I put them back where they belong. If it's too difficult, I make a jar of generic aqua or whatever that has a mix.
Hat off mosaic in your good work that you are doing
I want to get started on making mosaics but I am overwhelmed with the choices of tile available online. Do you have any recommendations?
Thank you for taking the time to reply!!!!
Yes, they are the older, thicker Opus Romano. Now they come in a thinner version :-)
was just about to ask the same question!
Yes, they are the older/thicker Opus Romano :-)
wonderful Sonia, what brand are the coral glass tess in the middle, they look like Opus Romano are they? Thanks for sharing.
Just a note, I was switching out my hammer/hardie setup when they came to film and this one is not fully installed. It should be much deeper in the log, down to the widest part of the hardie ;-)
