Once the foreground glue is dry the packing tape is removed and the background is mosaiced. And then we wait for that glue to set. For this piece I used a water-based glue that goes on white and dries clear.
And here is piece ready to be grouted.
When the grout has dried and the piece is buffed and cleaned the hanging hardware is installed. Price/information tags are attached as well and the piece is signed on the back.
And there we have it. It's a bit of a process, but anything worth doing takes some work.
