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.
For an opportunity to see this work-in-progress in Austin, Texas tomorrow night, see my blog post here.
