Booklist Review

The idea of making a mosaic is akin to staring at a just-completed 500-piece puzzle. It's great to look at, but who'd want to tackle a project like that? Crafter Donnelly answers the question by streamlining certain processes: eliminating cutting and nipping glass, offering easy-to-follow patterns, and sharing self-grouting procedures. Much of the book is devoted to ensuring beginners' comfort; she starts with a picture and list of tools, then details every material and step involved, along with tips and hints, such as waiting 48 hours before removing the mosaic from the mold or sanding off sharp edges after smashing crockery and pottery. Of course, color photographs, directions, and templates are all-inclusive--and ready for anyone to copy. --Barbara Jacobs
