Fairy and features.
Dear readers and fairy enthusiasts, a while ago I decided to make a mosaic of a fairy. Every garden needs a fairy, right? I had never made a mosaic of a human-like form before, so I expected it to be quite challenging. And indeed, it was. It turns out it is difficult to mosaic a tiny face, all of 2sq centimetres, and I made rather a mess of it. Nevertheless, as imperfect as it was, my friend decided she would buy it for her grand-daughter.
I grew to like the imperfections of the little fairy. She was sassy, not classically beautiful in a fairy sense. I think I shall make a fairy mosaic for my own garden one day. I did learn something valuable from making the little fairy. That was, should I ever attempt a face again, I need to make it a little larger. This is all rather a long way of saying that I’ve finished my orangutan mosaic. Finally! The focus of that mosaic is on the facial features of the orangutan. But first the fairy, because I think comparing the two shows a progression of ideas and craftsmanship. And then, you might as well have a sing. Because F is also for Friday.
