How to Make Your Own Mosaic Light Switch Plate Cover
Experiment with mosaic surface design using different types of tessera, small pieces of ceramics, glass and mirrors.Plug the hole in the light switch cover with a straw.Cover the surface of the lid with adhesive bas, e, and work in small parts.
Choose the adhesive specifically for mosaic creation.Mosaic glue is available in most local arts and crafts shops.In any design you want, apply the fragments of the tesserae to the adhesive.
Press firmly on the debris to ensure safety.Let the mosaic sit for at least 12 hours.Mix the grout and water as indicated on the container or purchase the pre-mixed grout.Your mud should have the consistency of thick cake frosting.
Cover the top of the mosaic completely with grouting.Be sure to fill in all the cracks between the tesserae blocks.Let the mud be placed for 5 to 10 minutes, then wipe the excess mud with a damp cloth.
Allow the mosaic to be placed overnight and wipe the surface again with a damp cloth until all grout and adhesive are removed from the surface of the tesserae sheet
