Sorry about the quality the photos - but that's how it is in the studio!
1. Design poppy and draw on 12ml MDF - this one is about the size of a large dinner plate.
|2. Make templates for the inner petals, to give a 3D effect, and cut them out in 6ml MDF.|
|3. Stick the inner MDF petals on the poppy and start cutting and sticking the tiles.|
|5...until it is, as you want it!|
|6. Cut middle tiles to look like seeds and stick them in - a bit fiddly!|
|7. Get grouting and cleaning! My fingers are my best tools, but they suffer afterwards!|
|8.One mosaic poppy!|
Lest we forget...
