More Ideas For You To Try

Now that you have been through the tutorials, here is a collection of ideas for you to try out. Hope you enjoy them.

Mosaic With Pebbles

You can add a more natural look with pebbles. Try using different sizes for a more random look, even sizes for a more symmetrical look or you can even make flower shapes and color the pebbles.

Add Images Of Animals

Why not try your hand at adding an animal in your design. The third one looks like Octopus Tentacles to me.

Buttons, Glass Beads, Old CD’s or Sea Shells

As you can see you can use Old Buttons, Glass Beads, Old CDs and even a mixture of Broken Tiles and Sea Shells.

Almost anything can be used to mosaic clay pots as long as it is thick enough to add grout. Otherwise, it becomes decoupage

Calming Colors

As you can see, Pastel colors needn’t look dull or boring. On the first pot, they have used river reeds to create an enchanting look. With the third image they have used striking straight lines and in the second image, they have used mosaic to decorate a bird bath.

OR Bright and Colorful

Here you can see the pot on the left is using a lot of different colors and a mixture of designs to create this lovely mosaic clay pot. However, in the image on the right, they have kept to green, white and grey shades creating an equally stunning effect. 

So there you have it Mosaic Clay Pots. I hope you have enjoyed this article, please feel free to comment and send me images of your clay projects.
