EVENING COURSES

INDIRECT TECHNIQUE

Indirect Technique is when the mosaic is created backwards like a mirror image. 

The method involves temporarily fixing the mosaic pieces to a removable backing (brown paper) which holds the design together.

When completed the whole mosaic is transferred onto the base.
