- waterproof teracotta pots
- Mandala Art mosaic glue paste
- Mandala Art glass mosaic tiles, and
- mosaic glass cutting tool.
We left the first pot to dry overnight. Jasmine drew a butterfly on another pot with a lead pencil and she began squeezing out the glue and sticking on small square tiles.
I think she did a fabulous job.
We talked about different ideas for decorating pots, inspired by what's in the garden and decided to try making a dragonfly, a green leaf and some autumn leaves. It was a bit tricky for Jasmine to break the tiles. She tried to break a few with my mosiac cutting tool and my sunglasses on to protect her eyes but mostly it was safest and easiest for me to cut the tiles.
Our dragonfly is probably my favourite.
Unfortunately our autumn leaves didn't really work out so we turned them into a band of autumn colours instead.
For the designs we chose, it wasn't necessary to use grout. However, we will soon try a different pot and a new number for our house where we will use grout. I will let you know how this goes.
