  • Step 4:
    Nip along the drawn lines with your mosaic wheeled nipper.

    Stick your petals down with your craft glue.
    Tip: Only put glue where you are currently busy or it might result in a raised, uneven finish.
  • Step 6:
    Nip your red mosaic into random pieces and start mosaicing your flower pot.
    Tip: Start with the outline of the pot and then work your way in. 
  • Step 7:
    Nip your Lime Green tiles into stem like shapes, stick the stems down with your craft glue. 
  • Step 8:
    Nip Green Leaves (same as the petals in step 3 & 4) and stick it down next to your stems.
  • Step 9: 
    Nip the White into random pieces and start filling in the background by sticking it down with your craft glue.
  • Step 10: 
    While waiting for your project to dry (should take about 30mins). Start mixing your grout with water until it is the consistency of cookie dough.
    Tip: If you are doing an outdoor project mix some bonding liquid with your grout to make it water resistant.
  • Step 11:
    Spread your grout evenly into all the caps, once it is dry sponge the excess grout off with a damp sponge. Be careful not to remove too much grout in the process so that it makes holes. Once the grout is completely dry polish the project with a dry cloth. (do not use polish products).
  • Step 12:
    Spray paint the sides of the tray, avoid getting paint on your mosaic by sticking a piece of old newspaper over your project.
  • Step 13:
    After your tray is dry and free of dust you can know pour your Pratliglo on, this gives your project a wonderful glass finished look and will also avoid coffee and tea stains on your grout.
