Quick background check
A mosaic is essentially an artistic technique that uses tiny parts to create a whole image or object. Mosaics are usually assembled using small tiles that are made of glass, stone or other materials. While typically these tiles are square, they can also be round or randomly shaped as you can see in the following images in mosaic wallpaper. There are two main methods for creating mosaics. One is known as the direct method, where artists place the tiles directly on the final surface, and the other is the indirect method, which is ideal for large scale pieces with a lot of intricate details. Artists place the tiles on a backing paper that is later transferred to the final surface once the mosaic is complete. It is fun to peruse this mosaic wallpaper collection and try to make out which method was used on the different motifs.
