All the white birch tessera are on the Wedi board!
Next step will be to start in on the background. It is this neat kind of gunmetal mirror with a bit of a wave in it, nothing crazy wavy, just a suttle bit. Also in the background is a bit of this dark translucent purple. You don’t see it as “purple” once it is surrounded by the gunmetal mirror and embedded in the black thinset – it just becomes a dark space in the background, not solid black but not purple, just dark space.
For the mirror though, this time, I decided I should try sealing it. Haven’t ever bothered to do this step before and have never had any problems with mirror use – but I’d read there is potential that not sealing cut mirror edges can lead to a breakdown of the backing / reflective part of the mirror. So – I cut out a bunch of bits, laid them all out on a table – donned my handy respirator mask because I was at the time having allergy issues I didn’t want to exacerbate – and went to town with the sealant spray!
Think perhaps I should make this picture below my profile picture on all my social network sites – what do you think? 😉 Next week – I’ll show you how the background and finished mosaic look!
