Mosaic Arts Online is delighted to introduce a new course that will hopefully ease your mind and give you the freedom to create with few rules and very little pressure. Welcome to “Mantra Mosaics” with Tami Macala. The “Mantra Mosaics” online course is designed to inspire and encourage you with feelings of freedom and positive emotions.

Tami starts by sharing her favorite materials for creating her Mantra Mosaics. A mantra is a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. Some people use affirmational words as their mantras. Tami will guide you in using affirmations or “mantra” words as she creates each unique mosaic piece with polymer clay, stamp letters, and some fun pastes and powders.

Once the words are created and come out of the polymer oven, it is time to create the mosaic. Tami’s whimsical approach to this project highlights how unique and special each one can be while still following some of the elements of art such as color balance, shaping, and focal points.

Tami creates her Mantra Mosaic on an exterior grade substrate using black thin set, but this project is designed to utilize whatever is available in your studio. If you have a wood substrate, some black paint, and PVA or silicone glue, you will be all set. Next, you will be able to dig into your studio stash and create with whatever you have. Tami has included a very in-depth “suggested materials and resources list” for the tesserae and polymer clay materials she has used during this course.

Tami takes you from beginning to end by creating a Mantra Mosaic with the intention of creating a piece that brings peace and joy and allows you to get lost in the creative process. Let’s get started!
