Mosaic on Styrofoam

Episode DCLB-244

Mary demonstrates how to make a mosaic wind chime. She uses a Styrofoam ball that is prepared using plaster of Paris so that it is strong enough and can accept the grout without being eaten through. She then secures hooks to the ball and glues in place before covering the hardened ball in seashells and decorator glass tile. A beaded wire hanger and beaded stringers are then made using glass and acrylic beads, crystals, semi-precious stone, pearls and shells.
