Cat on mesh, ready to leave for Florida

(This first picture is after the installation.)

Here is the little kitty cat, all done and ready to be mailed today.  I wish I could go to Florida too! 

See the previous post which describes how to mosaic onto mesh. 

I finished gluing the tiles last night, waited several hours, then s-l-o-w-l-y peeled the mosaic up and away from the plastic-covered cutting board.  It works best to peel at an angle; start at one corner and peel upward toward the opposite corner.  Then I laid it upside down for the night to make sure the glue dried thoroughly. 

Now I am ready to package and mail.  I have cut two pieces of heavy cardboard a little larger all the way around than the mosaic, and I will place him between the cardboard pieces and tape securely.  Then he goes into a flat rate mailing envelope and off to the post office.
