Update on Tamara's School Mosaic Project


Tamara's big mosaic project is now into its third week. Students and others come and go as the mosaic grows. The last few days she's recruited some of the kids in our neighborhood and even Sean to help out.

Today was a bust, however, as the person who has the key to the classroom where the tools and materials are stored called in sick today. Why the school doesn't have a spare key ... well, that's Costa Rica for you.

Even though at this stage it looks like it has a long way to go, most of the detail work is just about done. After that, the work is all about filling in the spaces between with white tile and then applying the grout.  When the grout is applied the features of the mosaic will really jump out from the wall.

  2. The mosaic wall is absolutely amazing looking, and I love the botanical theme. I can't wait to see the finished product.
