Damask in glass and gold tiles

I LOVE this!
These glass and 24 carat gold mosaic tiles are arranged in a damask pattern that is fabulous!
Carlo Dal Bianco’s “Damasco Oro Giallo” tiles are seen at the website: http://www.carlodalbianco.it/

Glass tiles are everywhere right now…

Gold and glass tiles in damask pattern

This inspired me to create a faux finish for an accent wall with a similar feel. My first step will be to trowel on the “grout” layer using a metallic plaster. Then I’ll figure out what medium to use to give the look of glass tiles. A little tricky- I’ve been trying a lot of things, but it’s not quite there yet. The damask pattern will be an oversize one and the “gold” tiles will be created with gold leaf. Pics of the process coming soon…
