Mosaic madness

Here's my latest mosaic project. The broken plates, coasters and tiles are all getting glued onto a metal IKEA table. I thought I could leave that little table outside until I got motivated to glue stuff on it, but it rusted!!! So, I'm experimenting with mosaic on a little rust!

The problem with working in mosaic on tables is keeping the surface flat enough to keep your beverage steady. Thus the coasters. If you see any cute ones without cork, let me know and I'll go snatch them up!

where did you get those white squares? they are cool. i love the coasters. i just nabbed a rusty bird bath from my mom's garage. i am going to mosaic it, but maybe put some primer over the rust first. i am interested in hearing more about rust-related mosaic issues.
