I'm the world's worst to drop and break, especially here in the shop where things are tight and have to be moved around often. Soooo, I had to learn how to save those broken pieces and make them into something pretty. Like most of you, I'd seen the broken china mosaic decorated pieces. Well, here's my attempt at that art. I really love how this little side table turned out.
SEEE, there's a broken platter AND a broken dish..........always lots to work with here in the shop. 8-(
Add some old buttons, a few shells, there's a handmade rose or two, and some flat side marbles.........all thrown together to make one sweet arrangement.
After working out the arrangement that you wanna use, each piece is individually glued down, using Weld Bond glue. I even used the stamp from the BOTTOM of a dish. Cute, huh?
This little section on the front of the drawer just yelled to be decorated too. So, it gets a ring of broken china, one hand made rose and a couple tiny china roses.
After every piece has found it's new home and the glue has dried, use any good tile grout, mix according to directions and grout the piece.

AND MY FAVORITE this one by Enchanted Rose Studios.......
I even used those tiniest pieces on this little teapot.
