Very fine, unusual and unique way of scenery of an interior by means of a mosaic from glass. If it seems to you difficult, and you think that the respective wide experience and special education is for this purpose necessary, you are mistaken, a mosaic from glass can master, if not each school student, each student it is exact. Truly, such scenery in an interior, – as a mosaic to make most it is rather easy, – the mosaic can be on walls, on a floor, on furniture and even on a ceiling. It is curious that the mosaic is transferred from Latin as «the work devoted to a muse», – truly, the fine title which corresponds to the equipment of a mosaic. Earlier such mosaic was an elite sign, such mosaic in the main thing from color stones, ceramics or smalt became. To make walls or a part of a wall of a mosaic, now special work does not represent, is to you not the stained-glass windows for which establishment it is necessary is truly long to study.
So, if you wish to make furnish a wall or a piece of a wall by means of a mosaic of color glass, I with pleasure will tell you, how it to make. First it is necessary for you to be reserved by pieces of color glass, in principle it is possible and to paint glass most, but it not the most reliable and not the most usual process. Use better already ready glass specially made for a mosaic, pieces of that glass for a mosaic should be uniform and rovnenky better. Glass for mm mosaic in the size 10-10, 20-20, 50-50, thickness usually from 3 to 12 mm is on sale, a form a square or diamond-shaped, color palette usually very big, – so can choose any colors. Glass or how truly to call chips, can be transparent, dim and color, opaque or glossy, painted only outside or only снутри, also with a chameleon type covering (color changes at change of a corner of survey of a mosaic). There are two methods of a vykladyvaniye of a mosaic, – a direct method and a turnaround method. At a direct method the mosaic gives all the best in a box the face upward, and at a turnaround method on a bottom of a caisson have a tracing-paper with drawing and at raying of a tracing-paper spread a mosaic, – at the last method the face will be turned down.
You can choose though what method, but the main thing before the calculation of a mosaic be caused with drawing, make it directly on a wall or on a tracing-paper. A glass mosaic strengthen by means of special glue, usually snow-white or transparent, with addition in it priming structure. In principle the mosaic is comparable with installation of a wall ordinary tile, but is exclusive in a miniature. It is possible to stack each chips separately, and it is possible to use installation of a glass mosaic by means of the modules matrixes, which size usually 30х30 see. Modules are produced at factory and represent paper base with the chips attached to it. After installation of this matrix when glue for fastening will seize, paper acts in film from "face". Glue usually every other day after that it will be necessary to make a fugirovaniye of seams and cleaning of the mosaic seizes. Try not to leave glue traces on a mosaic because glue is heavy for cleaning off from a mosaic later. In principle everything if wish to be engaged in that mosaic from glass show all the imagination when developing mosaic ornaments, it is truly very curious. Such mosaic from glass not only only is highly esthetic, but also the mosaic from glass will have the highest krepkost, huge protection against fungi and microbes, also she will be water-proof and resistant to chemical influences. At installation of a mosaic use the common sense, intuition and the imagination.
