Mosiac Sea Glass Table


This is my very first mosaic project.  It is very easy to make, but it does take some patience.  I had this table for a while and wanted to do something with it.  I used sea glass which I bought at my local craft store.  You need to get the flat sea glass for this project. The other 2 items besides the table that you will need are, mosaic tile adhesive and grout, both of which you can buy at your local craft.  I used regular grout that I bought from a hardware store.  They have grout that you mix yourself and ready to use grout, which is the one I bought. First, I traced a picture of a butterfly on the table, then started to glue the blue sea glass on the table. I did come across a small problem  (the table is glass and the sea glass is also transparent, which made the glue show through). I solved this problem by turning the table over and painting it white. Then I continued to glue the rest of the sea glass. It is important that you leave an adequate amount of space between each sea glass, so that there is space for the grout.  After gluing all the sea glass, you are ready to place the grout. Follow the instructions that come with the grout.  It is very easy to apply.  

Materials:

Small Table
White paint (if using a glass table)
Flat Sea Glass
Mosaic Tile Adhesive
Ready to use Grout

I love crafts and I am working on many different projects.  Some will be Holiday Crafts, so please come and visit again.  I hope to be able to inspire others to try some of my fun projects.
