Mosaic art is one of the oldest type of crafts that is still very popular today, with seashells, eggshells and pebbles of all sizes being used to keep this skill alive. This form of handiwork can be fabricated using just about any kind of material even glass, with just the assembling of small pieces to fabricate a beautiful artifact. Whether it’s glass or shells that are being used, each piece is usually painted, glued together and set to form the desired image. Some enthusiasts may choose to work with tiles.When getting into this pastime, draw out onto a sheet of paper or canvas the picture you would like to create. Ensure you have a tile cutter, gout, thin set, gloves and googles to protect your eyes.  Another material that can be used for this type of montage is ceramics.w In ancient times mural artifacts were a popular scene in synagogues and other important structures in the eastern part of the world. Consider using wood that is easy to work with like ply to build an indoor patchwork picture as a first attempt to learn the relevant skill. Try to involve other members of the family to help or include friends until confidence is gained to create a collage on your own being mindful that there are two types of plaid, indoor and outdoor. Try to experiment with different types of apparatus to discover which material is easier to work with whether it’s seashells or cardboard. It would be best to set aside a room or outside area specifically for this kind of hobby especially if you’re working with broken glass or ceramics.
