Mosaics and Lead lighting.
Hi all. I am a new member with tons of creativity inside me. I create stuff from other peoples junk. For many years I have wanted to turn my hand at Mosaics and Lead Lighting. I want to create a beach scene in Mosaic of Shoalwater Bay/ Penquin Island which is near Rockingham, Western Australia. I already have painted a 16 foot by 7 mural of this idyllic part of the world on my lounge room wall. Looks magnificent. I want the mosaic to be at least 4 feet by 3 feet. How do I stop the mosaic from sliding off the mounting board? Do I drill a myriad of small hole into the board so as to give the medium purchase?
Also I want to make Lead Light full window coverings, from 2 feet square up to 4 feet square.
Are there any members who would like to give me some clues on how to begin?
In researching accessibility of stain glass I have not had a lot of success here in Perth, Australia. Maybe I need to go to junk yards?
Thank you for reading my request. Anticipation is high that I will actually begin creating my creations.
