I've been working on a custom order for three mosaic surfboards and thought I would go ahead and post some "during" pics. If you would like, you can skip right to the after pics ;)
My customer wanted 3 different designs to fill a large wall in her home.
I've got most of the glass cut and ready to go. You can see the fabric swatch she gave me plus a general idea of the designs on paper which could change as I go.... you never know
She envisioned a water design on one, a foliage design on another and sea turtles or fish for the third board. Other than those instructions and the fabric swatch, she pretty much gave me free reign...yay!
There are three but here are 2 of the shapes cut out plywood, they are about 5 1/2 feet tall
Here is a "during" shot of the palm tree surfboard
....the wave/water surfboard. It changed a little from my first drawing.
Another shot of the palm tree with the sand...
I'm playing around with the tiles up top, they aren't glued on yet
Here are the sea turtles with coral surfboard with the swirly patterns of the water done so far.
Just a little more to go on this one, I ended up doing a night sky
with little gold "stars" (actually metallic gold glass) in the sky.
Just need to finish the edges and grout.
