This is the 2nd part of my post on the creation of my mosaic wedding board.
When I last left you I had all my tiles on the board but the one with the name and date. I was waiting for stamps to come in the mail. They kind of worked, but it was difficult to highlight them so they could be read. I ended up using alphabet stickers. And they work great! There are so many fonts and sizes to choose from. Really wish I had thought of this before I invested in so many different kinds of stamps. But now I have a solution. I should have put the name on a lighter clay. I’m learning new things with every project!
After this tile was done, I went through some charms I had and placed them all over the board. I had a wedding bouquet, a car with “Just Married” on the back, an engagement ring, etc.
Next, I placed gold liquid clay as grouting material between the tiles. It looked so light when it was wet I thought it was going to clash with the Scripture tile. But when it dried, it was a rich gold with shine! Very nice.
I’m really pleased with how the board turned out. I’ve already delivered it to the couple and they love it!
Below are a few more photos of the board.
Let me know if you’d like one of these for your home, or to give as a gift. Details can be found in my Shop HERE.
