Mosaic tile Gladius
Mosaic for beginner roman Gladius
Finally you can easily create own mosaic with your students. These mosaics can quickly be painted with water color or tempera. The single stones are very well visible and the seams deepened as in an authentic mosaic.
How to proceed:
1. The complete mosaic tile needs to be undercoated by a background color. Usually you take the color for the seams. Then simply distribute it with a lot of water over the tiles.
2. After a short time of drying (ca. 5-10 minutes) you can create the single mosaic stones with any color you like. The color shall not be mixed liquid in order not to cover the background color.
3. Your own mosaic picture is ready
You can clean the tiles with water and paint them once more in case you did not like the result. Without tools as mosaic nippers the pupils can create their individual mosaic. Already at primary school painting mosaics can be used successfully. You get a plain mosaic from white gypseous alabaster.
