Cheetah Cub - An experiment in Mosaic Art


Yesterday I unveiled my first colored designed Opus Pixellatum Mosaic. 

For the past 18 month, I have been creating patterns for my mosaics and other people's mosaics from a 7 tones grayscale palette.

I have also been researching a way to create patterns from wider palettes.

Cheetah Cub is my first experiment of this type. I designed the model based on the 64 colors of Mosaic Art Supply recycled glass Elementile line.




The Artist and the Mosaic just revealed in Headland, Alabama.
TA DA ! Cheetah Mosaic just revealed.

Although I still need to cleanup the glue, grout and frame the piece - I will keep posting on this process for I now have a secret weapon to clean up this pesky glue ! - I wanted to give you a peak at the beauty of this dramatic technique.






In this short video I am sharing the moment I flip the mosaic built upside down in reverse method how I spray it to reveal the brightness of the tiles. 



Would you like to create your own mosaic from one of your pictures ? 

I will create the model for you, with a list of references and quantities of tiles 
you'll need to build it.

I am a French mosaic artist established in Alabama. In 2015 I created a new dramatic mosaic technique. 
I named it Opus Pixellatum.
I am now sharing it with
fellow mosaicists.
