Yesterday we bolted the pieces of mosaic onto the original wooden sign, using thin set to seal the edges and the seams. I then added tesserae over the seams and the only area left to mosaic is a white strip down the right side. Jim Berry at Blue Moon Glassworks did a fantastic job of estimating how much glass I needed to order. I will have about a half-sheet of each color left over. After I grout, we will paint the edges with a black enamel paint. The sign is going to look fabulous on the front of South Austin Music's building.
