Thursday Night Rush

Thursday night in the mosaic room is a bit rushed, since we try to work only during hours when Micah 6 Food Pantry is preparing for its opening, and during the open time.  That is a mere flash of time in the world of mosaic!

We can’t take the mosaic work out to Micah 6 recipients as long as our new floor is being installed in the Great Hall, because the crowd is CROWDED during this procedure. ┬áBut, we are doing a little prep work in the mosaic room.

Tonight, we glued Panel Two of “The Feeding of the 5000” into its frame with marine epoxy. We also glued the blank Panel Three into its frame, so we’ll be able to move the panel around safely in order to work in various settings, such as the Great Hall.

Here are a few views from tonight’s efforts:

After gluing the blank Wedi board into its frame, we weighted down the edges with cartons of tile pieces.

Panel Two has been glued into its frame now. Yes, we checked to see that it is oriented in the right direction in the frame.

The first four completed figures from Panel Three have been cut loose from their boards and are resting here until they get mortared onto the panel.

Two more figures from Panel Three are ready to be mosaicked onto mesh.

You may join us Sundays after church until 2 pm to help in many ways.
