Okay,so I must keep positive that although people have come before
me it's easy to be disillusioned and say"Why didn't I do that",or "I
am doing that,but I didn't know it". I guess you have to be happy
with what you have accomplished and what you are doing. Instead of
"I want" let it be "I Will".

I am rambling as vision of Sinatra Movies dance in my head!

Project:
Clay pot mosaic
This technique can be used on other things besides pots.

1)Take many different colored tiles,place in large plastic bag one
at a time. Have students hammer to break into smaller pieces.
Separate by color and place on trays.
2)Use tile adhesive to smear a section at a time on a pot. Then
apply the tile to the adhesive. Create a design as you would a
mosaic.
Let dry.
3)When pot is covered,use your hand(with plastic glove)and spread
grout
over all of tile(preferably black).Wipe from bottom to top of pot
with
a cellulose sponge.The grout should remain between the tiles.Put
grout on the top lip of the pot as well.
Let dry.

Fill with flowers for mothers day project,fathers day project or use
technique on other surface.

90o weather
