Tiny Tile!

We continue to be challenged by the microscopic tile being used to make the crowd scene.  This is the only part of the mural being made by purchased material.  This tile ultimately comes from Morocco, but is purchased through Tiny Tile Mosaics.  The larger pieces are ¼ inch square and the smaller pieces are ⅛ inch square.

Can you say ‘tweezers’?

Roberta, in an effort to avoid the tiny tile, has made artistic trees and shrubbery to frame the downtown Austin scene, and to serve as a backdrop to Jesus’ encounter with the crowd on the lake shore.

Some like to ‘garden’, some like to ‘work the crowd’.

‘Chase’, the church dog, is the model for this little canine member of the crowd scene.
