The mosaic service

If you have no time to learn our software, the fastest way to get a mosaic project is having us do it for you.

Let's suppose you have a project/sketch of your next pool

Let’s suppose you are building a new pool. Almost surely, a mosaic will be put inside it, so why not having something special for it? You have a project of the pool and possibly photos of what’s around, plus some starting ideas about the decoration (maybe an image or a logo).

Example of our starting point
Our input project is often a PDF produced from a CAD software. It may come from an architect or engineer. But it can also be an handmade sketch or a serie of dimensions along with instructions.

After the first attempts, you come up with an idea...

Ok, now you know what you want: a logo, an image or some kind of graphics. You make a sketch and send us what you have. You start getting the high-resolution simulations of your next pool.

Houston, we need a project!

Make a sketch is not like making a project. It can be very difficult to draw a mosaic if you do not have all the necessary knowledge. And you need to know at least the main sizes and typologies of the commercially available materials.

Image decomposition
Send us the images you want to use inside your project. They can be as big as the project itself or as simple decoration element to be used with others. Use backgrounds, textures or any other image but remember: small and simple images work better. The more complex an image is the more difficult it is to make a mosaic out of it. Again many colors usually means rising costs. And if you want maximum details you will need to use 10 mm tiles.

The project takes form

We start from the biggest part, the bottom of the pool. Then we have to work on the other elements as well. There are many possibilities to discuss. Some choices will raise expenses other won’t work so well.

The first attempt: the idea is of a damascus background with flowers over it.

Hands on it, your project starts a-changin'…

Now that you are getting more and more experience, you take aware decisions about your project. Things start changing and changing until…

Maybe you didn't like the background or wanted something more aggressive. The flowers were too crowdy also.

This is the final relase, we added a border and made the flowers "exit" from it. Then we added the walls around it.

The project is ready

The project is ready and you get complete informations to build it: high resolution renderings, the bill of materials and the manufacturing book. See samples here  (photographic simulation, bill of materials, assembly instructions, tiling map).

Now what?

There are several options:

  1. Browse our Mosaic.Directory to find a mosaic company near you, they will build the mosaic
  2. Ask us a quote: we build the mosaic for you!
  3. Order the project's kit: you do it yourself.

 

Mosaic design starts at 2$/sqf.
