DIY Mosaic Planters

She says,'' I wouldn't call myself an artist, I'd rather be known as a 'trial and error' DIYer."

Look at her work and then tell me What would you prefer to call her? In my eyes Neha Aggarwal is definitely very talented.

Even as I stumbled upon her art for the first time, I knew I had to feature her work.Mosaic planters is a brilliant idea to give  a new life to your planters. This is also something that is a very ideal DIY during summers. Your plants are sure going to love you for this.

Over to the expert...

My love for mosaic started off, taking part in an innocent workshop wherein I learnt to up cycle glass shards and tint them in various hues. That's when I decided to infuse my little balcony garden with lots of colours by transforming staid terracotta planters into eclectic mosaic ones. And my first attempt came out okay. I recently got lots of pre-cut glass tiles from a recent trip abroad and started glamorizing my other planters and the response was phenomenal! 










These are pre-cut glass pieces, now commonly available on Amazon and eBay. I stick them using either silicon glue or a stronger  adhesive called F-6000. The design is mostly in my mind, although the next couple of pieces I am planning will be more structured and I will cut the pieces myself to make the imagery cohesive. I make a paste of tile grout and water to fill up the gaps between the pieces and when it dries, I clean them up lightly with a wet sponge. Later I paint them with the brightest acrylic colours that catch my fantasy and voil√†! Mosaic planters are ready :)

Good pre-cut glass is available in craft stores like Joann and Michaels in the US.

Neha is also currently working on Mosaic'ing' mason jars which she has tinted recently and in the future, want to create a mosaic mural on one of her walls. Mosaic mural....That sounds so so  wonderful.
And for sure sajavat would want to capture that too Neha!

Peeps, also have a look at some of the other planters that she has so beautifully transformed.

Some 'before' and 'after' effects for you...

Nice work by Neha! I am sure I am going to try doing one myself as I have been hesitating this for a long time now. It certainly helps to see how it is done as it gives loads of confidence to proceed further however small the project may be!
