Pique Assiette Mosaic Tile
You’re just gluing stuff to other stuff. Besides, it can be a really cheap hobby … or not. Depends on how obsessed you become.
To get started, find a space to call your own and stock it with the right tile tools, materials and adhesives.
Start small and you’ll grow from there … believe me.
Best mosaic tile tools …
