Mosaic Mandala 4
I find this mandala delicious. When I finished it I couldn't stop going back into the room to look at it as it dried. I loved it so. It's funny because I'm not a big fan of green so I was surprised at how much I liked it.
The materials used here are Italian smalti, glass gems, metallic vitreous tiles, millefiori, and 24k gold tiles. Yes, I used gold. I know you can't see it because I actually put them in upside down. The cool thing about the gold is that it is placed on top of this beautiful aqua glass and when used upside down the gold shimmers through the glass and creates a brilliant color. You can see it between the glass gems.
I'm having so much fun with these!
