This book may say it's a beginner's guide
but I would personally say that the projects
are good enough for anyone that
wants to make the mosaic designs.

The book starts with the history of mosaic's
and then asks you can join by making the
eight projects in the book.
The book also invites you to use the techniques
to create your own mosaic's with your own designs.

You learn all about the different materials
you can use and the tools you will need.
You will need a number of tools before you can
start making mosaic's but once you have the
tools you can then use them on all of your

Each projects is broken down into steps.
Each of these steps include a picture
to show you what you should be doing.
The instructions and the pictures are clear
and easy to understand.

There are little notes throughout the book
which can help you on each of the projects.

The projects are ideal to make for yourself
or to make as presents for family or friends.

The projects are;
Aztec Mirror Frame
Kilim Table
Seahorse Panel
Orange Tree Dish
Jewelled Clock
Crazy Plant Pot
Pepper Tile
Fancy Fish Panel.

The colours used are ideal for each of the projects
but you can always amend them to your own
tastes or decor.

At the start of each project you have a full
list of all the materials you will need.
They also include notes where you might
be able to get some of the materials easier.

I will be making a number of the projects
from the book, infact I really like
all of the projects.

An ideal book for a beginner
but also good for someone who wants
help making beautiful mosaics.
