Family Project to Garden Art
To add a whimsical touch to their garden path, the family covered plain concrete steps with mosaic art panels depicting a wiggling snake, a leaping frog, flowers, ladybugs, and other natural forms.
The mother drew the designs on paper, and then used carbon paper to transfer them to the steps. Her daughter used tile nippers to cut ceramic tiles and old plates into pieces; she then affixed the fragments to the concrete.
After the adhesive had dried thoroughly, they applied tile grout to fill in the gaps between the pieces. Finally, the father framed each panel with redwood 2 x 4s.
