Featuring hand painted ceramic tiles by Anne Cardwell - a bright colourful, attractive mosaic. Completely unique - you can't buy this anywhere else! It is a perfect introduction to this ancient yet contemporary art and it could also be a lovely gift for a creative friend.
A stylish project to make at home, everything you need is included, the ceramic design alone is worth £8.20 making this little kit very good value. These tiles provided in 2 colour ways are very soft and can be easily nipped with any conventional nippers, as well as the tiny nippers which you can choose as an option.
The design will always include a bird, a flower and 2 colours of tiles. Plenty of extra tiles are allowed for practicing and errors. (The designs may not be exactly the same as illustrated, but will always complement the ceramic flowers/birds).
For a beginner I would estimate one kit would take 90 minutes to complete. The project does not need grouted.
An instruction sheet is available online, a link will be sent.
Includes (for either one or 2 designs, as selected)
Base board, 100 x 100 x 3mm laser cut mdf base (attractive dark edging)
Adhesive (good quality PVA)
Ceramic design/s (bird & flower)
Background tiles in a choice 2 colour ways as shown.
Does not include A pair nippers is not included and they are essential. For this project and these soft tiles the small nippers are suitable. Please use with care and are not suitable for young children. Older children might use them with supervision. If you have sidebiters or wheeled nippers they are also useable, but I have found these nippers are best with these tiles.
SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES with supervision. (I would recommend secondary school age upwards.)
Suitable for placing indoors only. Do not grout, tiles are absorbent.
The ceramics are hand painted and fired, therefore may vary a little from the illustration. (Only in a good way!)
