Tuesday on the mosaic chair........

Lots of work ahead - 3 weeks till opening of the Community Hall and seating arena.

Part of snake body. The river changes shape and I will backfill and reshape on Wednesday directly to the chair and the floor. Will look good when it's patched, filled and grouted. I am looking forward to doing this - tune in tomorrow night for update.
Sore fingers, sore knees but feel good - it was great to be in the fresh air today.

The chair continues OzMosaics Chair Karalee mosaic project

It was a cold Monday morning and a bit of a drive after loading up the 4WD again with all the mosaic "stuff" but we did it.
Maureen, Dave and Sandy took off on another mosaic marathon adventure and managed to install part of the inner mosaic chair back....the snake head and the river of fish were on the go.

Sandy looked her typical mess in old mosaic garb, jeans and red hat...nothing unusual.

Popette (aka Maureen( looked great and as usual was covered in thinset in the first hour). Dave painted the waterproof membrane (green goo) for starters. The black goo pattern for the mosaic petals shows through the green goo - a bonus!

Maureen sits next to the Rainbow serpent snake head, made up of lots of pieces of the students mosaic art, from two years ago leading up to this year. The eyes look great and we have to patch and grout, seal and polish yet and connect to his body tomorrow.

Sandy takes a rest - that's what seats are for???
