Red Swirl Mirror
I finished another mosaic today. This is another one that I have been working on for awhile - work on it, put it away, work on it, put it away, finally finish it.
I used black and red Tiffany mosaic glass with black grout on a simple IKEA mirror frame.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it. It's a nice little mirror. Katrina think I should have used a lighter grout (I used black), but I think it would have looked to fractured. I did learn one thing from this project, that I should have 'keystoned' the red swirls. This means I should have cut them at angles to make the curves fit together like an arch. Oh well, each project is a learning experience.
