Catching up on the count, part 2….228-248

I’ve complete a few mosaics recently:

I’ve had an idea to use bottle caps in mosaics for a while, in my never ending search for something new to glue to a board and grout!   I was given quite a wonderful collection of beer bottle caps by two very generous people.  Technical difficulties have slowed me down, though.  A couple of initial pieces were scrapped, but I am rather happy with this little mirror featuring Oberon beer caps, made right here in Michigan…Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo….I call it “You are my sunshine”…and now I think I have a better handle on how to use caps, the technique, the limitations.

I’ve also made another “Key to my heart”, and this tobacco brown grout is my new favorite for these pieces:

And my first Rooster….he’s definitely funky
