Mosaics With Paper and EasyCast!

 Bezel four of Mosaic week!
 A lot of artists create mosaics with paper.  Paper mosaics are much lighter and easier to cut and assemble than actual tile would be.  All you need is some interesting paper to start.
 I cut 1/4 inch strips of paper.
 Then I weaved the strips to create this fabulous looking paper mosaic!
 I taped the back of the weaved paper to hold the strips in place.  Then I cut it to fit the bezel I was working in.  I applied three layers (letting the glue dry between applications) of Ultra Seal to protect the paper.
Finally, I poured EasyCast resin into my bezel and added the charm.
Ta Da!!
