How did the Roman's set their geometric mosaics when they covered such a large area? Did they draw the pattern out, paint some guidelines or scratch marks onto the floor to guide them? It is possible they used one of these methods but what if you have a large room with perhaps 40 feet (12m) of border pattern around the edge?
One way is they used a staff, something myself and others have been working on for a few years now. Using a staff (a length of wood about 12" long) you can set out your mosaic without drawing out a pattern on your base.
This set of download instructions is totally unique, you won't find them anywhere else in the world. I will take you through step by step, first marking the staff and then setting out your mosaic.
Included in this download is the full instructions plus a guide to the number and colours of the tesserae (mosaic tile) you use for the mosaic. It does not matter what size of tesserae you use it is all the same.
The staff is usually a length of wood but you can even use a strip of card, anything that has a straight edge and can be marked.
