About the Book
This manual takes the reader step-by-step through the process of creating mosaics, using an ancient technique called the double-indirect method. The author has updated this technique to use modern, easy-to-find materials while still retaining the spirit of the original Roman method.

The author applies her techniques to a basic stepping stone mosaic, making them easily accessible to crafters of all skill levels. In addition, she includes guidelines that allow the reader to design his or her own mosaics, rather than using pre-made patterns.

The manual is broken down into the following segments:

Techniques Overview

Tools and Materials; includes Design Tools

Steps - Planning and Design

Steps - Workspace Setup; specifically intended to save space without sacrificing practicality

Steps - Layout

Steps - Making It Permanent; includes finishing touches to enhance the completed stone

The author uses an informal, friendly approach, making her descriptions as specific as possible without being intimidating to beginning artists. In her own words, "I promise you won't need a pristine art studio or a pile of money" to apply her techniques.
