Have you ever tried mosaic? I have designed these gorgeous kits for anyone who would like to try this fascinating and ancient art form. My kits are special, because you need no prior knowledge, there is no cutting needed, and all the contents are of the same quality that I use daily in my mosaic-making.
Be the envy of your friends when they ask where you got your rainbow mosaic, and you can reply 'I made it!' Alternatively, these make a fabulous gift for any rainbow lover, or for that somebody who has everything. They certainly don't have one of these!
Each of these gorgeous kits has everything you need to make your very own mosaic:
* elegant little mdf shape, approx 12cm wide; * the design is marked on the shape; * professional grade tiles * bottle of strong glue; * tweezers; * professional grade grout; * stirrer/spreader; * a pair of non-latex gloves.
A full colour instruction booklet takes you through every step, as if you are sitting in my mosaic studio!
The mdf shape even has a hole in it so you can hang it up as soon as you have finished it.
NB: intended for people over 12, although with supervision, children under 12 could easily do the mosaic. Children must not mix the grout. Keep out of reach of small children altogether: small pieces, liquid glue, powder grout.
POSTAGE CAN BE COMBINED FOR MULTIPLE KIT ORDERS. PLEASE CONTACT ME TO CONFIRM THE POSTAGE COSTS. I cannot alter the postage element if you order multiple kits without contacting me.
Thank you, beautifully packaged and arranged item, my daughter is looking forward to making this over the weekend and wants to take it to school as she's doing Roman history and learning all about mosaics :)

Postage and packing for the UK is listed for each product. For all other destinations I will calculate costs individually.
Postage and packing for prints is £5 WITHIN UK and £10 elsewhere, subject to confirmation of final delivery destination. This price includes the use of a sturdy tube in which the print is rolled. This is a standard method of sending prints.
