TECHNIQUES

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 which holds the design together.

When completed the whole mosaic is transferred onto the base.

DIRECT TECHNIQUE

Direct Technique is when the tesserae (mosaic pieces) are glued directly on the wooden support like in roman time, using twezzers and tile adhesive.
