The basic kit contains the tesserae and instruction sheets, the glue and baseboard are left out to cut down on postage cost, these can be sourced locally.
The Solomon's knot was one of the most common of motifs found in Roman mosaics. This simple kit is suitable for both adults and children who want a bit more of a challenge for their school project. (If it is for a school project then let me know when you order and I will put in a set of the KS2 Roman mosaic worksheets for free)
Included in the kit is everything you need except for the the cutting tools. The tesserae (mosaic tiles) are unglazed ceramic. You can use scissors to cut the tesserae or you can add a pair of the mini nippers to your order for an extra £2.50.
This kit is purely decorative and is not suitable for placing outdoors or in wet areas.
Board size 20 cm x 20 cm
Tesserae size 10 mm x 10 mm x 4 mm

You can have the full set of instructions on how to set this mosaic without drawing out the pattern on your baseboard. You make a small mark where your centre tesserae goes and after that you will be working free hand! The instructions supplied will take you through the whole process step by step. Just let me know if you want to try this out and I will send those instructions along with the paper pattern and you can see if you want to try this method. This is supplied at no extra cost
