Laurel Skye, author of Mosaic Renaissance, defines the types of tile and illustrates the shapes of the cuts. She then moves onto the techniques that you’ll use to make those shapes; you’ll learn to point, pinch and pop and the tunnel hold method, as well as the most efficient way to cut millefiori. Before you know, it, you’ll be mosaicking things you never thought possible!
