Ok, for my first solo attempt I think I did okay, no? And my toes are no longer stuck together so overall I’d say it’s a win-win situation.
It’s not perfect but 98% complete and it didn’t crumble in my hands this time 🙂 There are a few tesserea that fell out that I will superglue back in once the base dries out a bit, if it will ever stop raining here!
The base is set on a super heavy solid piece of cast iron that I found in a scrappy antique shop in Santa Margherita. I painted it beige but it needs another coat or maybe even another base colour, indigo blue?…your feedback on the colour is most welcome.
I can also embellish the border a bit with more of the blue tesserae…it needs something more, I just don’t know what yet. Maybe it just needs a ray of sunshine and a permanent home 🙂
Either way, now that I have made it this far I have restored my faith in the possibilities of what I am capable of and if practice makes perfect I will forge ahead and do more in the future.
