New Mosaic Art Butterfly WIP
I started this project last month and then stalled while I pondered how to approach the background (earlier WIP picture in previous post).
Next up: Transfer this to a piece of concrete board. Right now it is assembled on clear contact paper and you are looking at the right side. I'll glue paper to the face, remove the contact paper from the back, glue the butterfly to the concrete board then remove the glued paper.
The idea is that the butterfly will have a beautiful smooth texture and the background will be more highly textured for contrast. I've decided to use smalti for the background. That should give it a nicely textured look and the uniform material will not detract too much from the focal. And I get to play with smalti :)
