Tall Mosaic tile polymer clay by MandarinMoon Tall Mosaic tile polymer clay by MandarinMoon
I just love these iridescent gems!

I started with a 5" x 12" crystal clear acrylic tile. I covered it with black and chocolate brown polymer clay. Then I cut holes in the clay where the glass gems sit so that the light will shine though illuminating the gems when back lit. I've decorated it in my signature style. Also included are polished glass catseye cabochons, metal brads, a dichroic glass leaf, dyed shell buttons, a gold necklace, and part of an old Relic watch. The clay was cured in my oven and then acrylic and metallic paint was added. It is rather hefty at one pound! The gems have a rainbow iridescence that changes depending on how the light hits them.

Not sure if you received my earlier posting, so I signed up to deviant art...and here is my comment on your work....and a request....
I am getting ready to begin volunteering with a local Seattle architect who has opened up his office to the homeless, trying to encourage the public to merely recognize and interact with them as they are, 'human'.  So I plan on working with him to invite the homeless into his office area and create mosaics to sell for themselves and/or donations to the local Seattle shelters and food banks.  I would interview each one and put their picture with a short story on the back of each mosaic.   I would love to have your permission just to show pictures of your work to give them some creative ideas for their own mosaic.  Thanks in advance for your considerations.  I just adore your work!    Deb Ramirez   debrami10@gmail.com
