Want to start out making copies of Roman mosaics? This guide gives you everything you need to know to start. We go through the materials needed to start you working and they are very simple and easy to get. The important thing is that you can get started as soon as you want.
Once you have the materials I tell you about 'The Rules', what they are, why they had them and how you can use them in your mosaic work to make sure you have a mosaic that is uniquely Roman and not just a piece of modern mosaic.
There is a method of work I have developed over the past 16 years of doing this that is easy to apply and really does help you to appreciate how the original craftsmen must have worked.
I also go through how you can progress afterwards, how you will apply what you have learnt here all the way through, however complex or artistic the mosaics you work on are.
You'll also receive two pattern packs to print off so you will have plenty different ones to choose from.
What I teach you comes from 16 years of this work and you will progress faster than me as I can show you how to avoid the mistakes I made and how to get the mosaic out of this fascinating craft.
