Very clever indeed would make brilliant door stops,but that is rather demeaning for a work of art,is the adhesive you are useing now waterproof.

Waterproof pva Brian! And if the grout has no gaps in it, it's fine. Had mosaics outside for 4 years some of them....

I've given this one a name...'Pandora's Box' Thanks Gemma glad you like it. I have also just mosaicked a screwdriver onto slate!

Sorry....I should have said Jem!

wonderful. could you do a basic how-to for outdoor mosaics? I've no idea what adhesive to use, apart from anything else!

I use PVA glue Fran. As long as the grout has no spaces (easy to miss a bit sometimes) then they are fine. I've had mosaics in the garden for five years or more and they are still going strong!
