Design a Mosaic Pattern

Updated:2013-11-19 15:15:20
Mosaic artwork is a great addition to your home decor but can be quite pricey. If you learn how to design a mosaic pattern of your very own, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of mosaics at a fraction of the cost. The best thing about making your own mosaics is that you can select the colors you prefer and the picture you want to create.

Instructions as follows:

                                                

Firstly, find the picture to imitate in your mosaic pattern. This can be accomplished with library books, Internet surfing or simply flipping through photo albums and magazines. If you have a general picture in mind, it really helps create the pattern.
Secondly, draw the pattern on paper. Graph paper is a really good idea when working with mosaics, especially if you are working with square tiles. It can be quite useful, even when using irregular bits of glass, to create the pattern. When you are learning how to design a mosaic pattern, drawing it out on paper helps you get a real sense of the finished product.
Thirdly, use colored pencils to color in the squares of the design on your graph paper. This allows you to see the colors in your mosaic pattern come to life. You can erase if you change your mind about a particular color or want to shift things around a bit. Pencils save paper and time because you do not have to start completely over to make minor changes. When all is finished, you can see your finished design and get to work on actually creating the mosaic.
Fourthly, use squares of construction paper rather than colored pencils on the graph paper as an alternative method. You will find graph paper in many sizes to coincide with the specific mosaic you are creating. If you are making a larger pattern, construction paper works better for some than colored pencils.
Tips & Warnings
Use a high-quality eraser for your design efforts. This allows you to erase without damaging the paper or leaving marks behind.
