Real works of art
Well, some garden mosaics look like real works of art. They are respectful, we admit that! But their appearance is by no means so unattainable, believe us!
The materials you will need to garden mosaic crafts!
To make a garden mosaic, you need flat boulders. Furthermore, you would have to prepare enough concrete mix. Gravel and fine primer for the base is also necessary.
Step one in mosaic-crafting
You must first prepare and sort the stones. Decisive criteria are the size and the form. Distribute them on piles and in buckets.
Now we have arrived at the most exciting part, namely, to make the stone mosaic. To do this, you would first have to distribute sand. About 8 cm, the layer must be thick. Put the stones into the shape that you have chosen for your garden.
Step three - well prepare the site of the project
Keep in mind that the mosaic layer must be slightly higher than the area around it. Otherwise, a lot of water will accumulate on it. Around the mosaic you would have to dig a ditch. It must be about 30 cm wide on both sides and have a depth of about 15 - 20 cm.
Step four - moisten the concrete mix
With the garden hose or another device you should now moisten the concrete mixture. They are finished when it turns from dust to crumbling.
Step five - draw the shape of the mosaic on the concrete
If you want to achieve a circular shape, then a sequencing could be very helpful. At each end you put nails. Reduce the length of the circle radius. The one nail should be there where you want to put the center. Then spread and draw the circle.
Step six - put a stone in the middle
You now have to place the stones one after the other in the concrete mix. Start in the middle. Put the first stone and press it briefly until it stops. The others are based on this. Continue working to the limit.
Step Eight-Let the mosaic dry well
Everything looks good now. In order for you to keep these wonderful pictures that way, you would have to stay that way for a while. It is best to cover it with a plastic cover. This protects the mosaic from moisture. You would have to be patient. For the complete attachment you would have to wait a few weeks depending on the weather, in some cases.
