This episode showed a little while ago and it is supposed to be airing again August 1st on the DIY network at 12pm EST, in the US.
Laurel True shows step-by-step how to take a rubber ball and turn it into a fantastic mosaic sphere! This is a picture of the finished product from the DIY Network’s website. You can print all the steps to do it yourself!
Even though I started out with mosaic just breaking up tile, it never really got me all that excited until I saw Laurel’s work. She uses colour! It’s not often that you see really colourful tiles because most people use… well frankly ugly tiles for home decor!!! Alot of the colourful tiles here in Canberra are usually the soft, low-fire tile, which you can’t use here as we get frosts. Laurel True uses tile from McIntyre Tile Company. They are a high-fire tile and come in beautiful colours…
Anyway, I love this project. There are too many DIY projects that are just so dull and plain ugly and it makes me wonder why bother!? But not this one. This takes an el cheapo kids’ rubber ball and turns it into a piece of art.
