Following our in-depth instructional video, you will build an actual mosaic tile and learn the basic techniques necessary to craft any mosaic you can imagine.

✓ Consider purchasing a standard 12'' x12'' concrete paver stone from your local construction supplies store to install your mosaic in the garden or create a pathway across the lawn. Follow the guide on the last page of the workbook to complete the installation.

✓ For installing your mosaic tile onto the exterior wall consider using construction adhesive.



✓ This project contains small parts. Keep the glass, all small parts, glue and paint out of reach of small children and pets.
✓ We have tumbled the glass pieces you’ll find in a kit, which means the edges are less sharp than those of glass that is just cut or broken. However, please make sure you have access to clean water and a first aid kit with bandages when you start working on mosaic.

I am a mature student. I haven't studied art or drawn since I was in High School. On a whim I took the Watercolor Stories course. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it, and having fun with the course has been a highlight of my day for the last week.

My first project from RainForestArtProject, & it did not disappoint. Easy to follow instructions with all necessary tools included & I was brought to so much joy while creating my dragonfly. I've ordered 5 more kits since! Shipping was very prompt & great customer service! I look forward to ordering & completing my other glass art mosaic stepping stones. Thanks so much!

I sent a frog and a fish to my daughter and her roommate, college students who are studying remotely and feeling isolated. They really enjoyed the process, and the finished product is beautiful. Shipping was fast, everything they needed, including tools, was included, and the instructions were perfect. I'm going to order another one for my niece, also a student stuck in her apartment on zoom all day. [Originally posted on Etsy]

A beautiful mosaic kit with everything needed to complete your project, including tools. I bought two kits and made a larger project more than twice as big, so I needed more grout to match and the company was wonderful to work with to get me what I needed to create my work of art. Great product and great value for the money. [Originally posted on Etsy]
