I'm so excited to see your little dish. It's beautiful! I've had an oval one for 2 years now that I wanted to do the same thing with but didn't know how to go about it. Do you have to prep the dish in any way first? How did you attach the mosaic? What did you use for grout? Hope you don't mind all the questions.

Thanks everyone! I couldn't get the pic to get bigger so I will take a new pic later today. I hosed it clean and let it dry, used GE11 to glue it on and Mapei grout.This was my second mosaic project and I used plate shards and half marbles. It is 3 years old and I haven't had any problems with it--I bring it in in the winter.

What a beautiful birdbath! I hope you can make the photos larger, my old eyes need to see more. LOL.
But I love what I see of it.

hugs, Karen

It turned out very nice! I like the use of the glass globs for the center of the sunflower ... makes it look like the real seeds. Great way to repurpose those unsightly satellite dishes!

OMG!!!
I just passed one on the side of the road coming home today! I couldn't stop due to traffic, hoped it would be there tomorrow.

Yours is gorgeous! Now, I'm tempted to go back out TONIGHT! Best of all, I'm SO GLAD to hear that GEII worked. Actually, I was coming home from one of our rentals... where I was GROUTING the bathroom tile floor!

OO EE OO... certainly sounds like dejavue to me!!! Kinda SCARY even.
