Mosaicists tend to be a passionate bunch of people from all sorts of backgrounds who happily share a mosaics obsession and never want to be cured. Those who frequent the Yahoo group Mosaic Addicts recognise the same kind of passion in Steve Irwin’s love of wildlife and were affected by his tragic death.
Someone came up with the idea of doing a mosaic as a tribute and as a possible fundraiser for the zoo, and next thing the madness that is the Steve Irwin Mosaic Tribute Project was born.We’ve probably created a monster but its going to be the friendliest, funniest, most incredibly creative monster going.
Especially under Sandy Robertson of Ozmosaics fame’s influence. Sandy lives in Queensland and is willing to take on the challenge of actually sticking on all of our contributions to whatever this mosaic is allowed to be stuck on!
We don’t care if you have had many years experience or whether this is your first mosaic. Whether you use the most expensive gold leaf or smalti you can find, or whether you use pieces from that broken plate you accidentally dropped the other night. If you can attach it to a piece of mesh with an appropriate adhesive [and we’ll give you further details about what can work], and you can post it without the Australian Customs service wanting to irradiate or dispose of it, then your effort is more than welcome.
And please, please, please feel free to leave comments, questions, ideas for future posts or just say hello. We’ll love to hear from you.
So go on now, BREAK SOMETHING! 😉
