Hello everyone!

This will be my instructible for the second table cover I'm making..

This time I'm making PACMAN !

It's great for making a new table, covering an old one or applying this technique to something defferent than a table.
 
You can turn it into a new table or make it the size that fits your table.

this is my first instructible if you need more details:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Mario-Mosaic-Table-Table-Cover/
 
 
 
Hardware you will need:
 
-Sealant gun
-Utility knife
-Small 3Wood saw
-Small hammer (1-0.5 pound)
-Measuring tape
 
Materials:
-2 Tubes of white silicone sealant (That's what I've used - you can use the clear type)
-Black spray paint
-20 Small wood nails (1" lenght)
-24" * 52" Plywood (0.5" thick)
-4 stripes of plywood for the frame 2 x (52" * 1") and 2 x (24" * 1")  ( both about 0.5" thick)
-0.8" Glass mosaic stones - ~1519 Black ~24 White ~226 Blue ~126 Red ~145 Yellow - Total of 2040 stones.
 
** I don't know the prices for these materials in the US but I paid about 70$ for the mosaic stones, 20$ for the plywood and already had the sealant, nails and spray.
 
** You can use different kinds of materials to glue the stones - plastic glue, mosaic adhesive or other types of glues.
 
** Yellow and red stones are more expensive than other colors.
 
** It is not recomended to use MDF instead of plywood because of its weight and poor water resistance.

Step 1: Modifying the image for the mosaic and printing

Picture of Modifying the image for the mosaic and printing
In this project, I just drew the pixels and printed them, unlike my last mosaic project where I took a full resolution image and turned it into a mosiac design.

If you want to make your own image please go to my 1st ible':

I attached my design for pacman to this step.

Thank you ((:

I built this in Minecraft. The first is in vanilla Minecraft. The second is in a texture pack I prefer called Sphax PureBDcraft . Both are stained glass. I really like the design Tzabary did. I did it in glass since the actual mosaic is glass. The big guy on the ground is my golem Fernando.

How many pixels is it long? also, how wide?

This is a great idea, I really like the look of that tile. I would be concerned about the massive effort to clean it all the time, how do you think this would work with a clear resin top coat for a smooth surface?

Thank you!

I think it's a very good idea and I would have done it myself if the clear resin top coating wasn't so expensive here...

a wet towel does the job for me but it would be a lot easier if it was a smooth surface...

I'm thinking about using some baking crystals they use to make suncatchers to do the design. I've got a grid that can pump out 1/4" squares already, so I might do something a bit more hi-res like 16-bit Street Fighter or something. If I can get it going, I'll post you a pic.

Pacman sprites, IMHO, is always an elegant design to make stuff with. This looks beautiful :)
