Mosaic Masterpieces

Nothing makes me happier than having customers (decorative painters) who have customers (daring homeowners) who are willing and wanting to push the envelope, so to speak, with designs and patterns in their homes. Granted, these types of projects MAY require a healthy budget, but more importantly they resist the need to “play it safe”. Case in point: this amazing faux mosaic application that was inspired by the art and decoration at the original Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.


Michelle, on our staff, did an amazing job of creating these large mosaic flowers, and Anna and Scott Sadler of Surface Refinements in Scottsdale, Arizonaย got to do the fun indredibly tedious part of applying various colors of metal leaf, metallic foil and metallic paints to the individual squares, estimated to be around 7,000 in number. Talk about commitment and determination-or as Anna calls it-insanity!



Yes, a LOT of work. But seriously, HOW MUCH do you want something like this in your bathroom? I want it BAD! I even want to see it going up one wall, across the ceiling , and down the other side. Maybe Anna and Scott would want to come to my studio here an do that, now that they have so much “experience”.


You can see how much this “mosaic madness” has gotten under their skin…..


Update: My friend in stenciling, Helen Morris, blogged about this here.


  1. That look like more work than even “my” bathroom! I’d love to know how long it took to remove the modello.
    Brilliant finish!

  2. I love it.

  3. Whoa. FANTASTIC job by Anna & Scott. I have to find a space for this application! Thanks for posting this, Melanie!

  4. Anna and Scott this looks incredible! You are two wild and creative!!

  5. Rhonda Canales

    Wow, great job. This bath looks amazing!

  6. You guys are so amazing!! This is such a fantastic job. Wow, I am speechless.

  7. Anna and Scott…you two are brilliant!! What will you create next???? Kelly

  8. I just happened to be at a class when the “weeder” was working on this modello. I went crazy over it. It was the most magnificient modello I had seen. Then I found out it was a “private” modello. I was sad!! I am so glad Anna shared the finished beauty of her creation. Totally awesome.
    Anna, how did you figure out how to apply the metallic colors?

  9. Wow! love, love, love it! Fantastic job, Anna & Scott!

  10. Jan,

    it is probably the most intricate modello we have ever done and will ever do again. After the first leaf I knew we were in trouble ๐Ÿ™‚
    after spending hours and hours looking over real mosaic tile patterns, we tried to replicate the reflective qualities and colors used in real mosaic and render the flowers as realistic and dimensional as possible. We were cooped up in that bathroom with respitory masks {finally got smart in my old age!} not to inhale those mica powders} We are definetely pleased with our creation and I guess its a little like childbirth, you forget the pain ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Anna& Scott,
    There are no ugly babies that I know of!! I think when we give birth to a project there is a beauty that comes from it like no other .

  12. Oh my goodness!! seriously? this is fantastic I love it! Such beautiful work, very inspiring.

    This is fabulous! I want to create something like this. The whole room is stunning. Love the blue walls and the bent wood sink stand is incredible. How lucky to have incredible clients who were so open-minded. Bravo to you in suggesting and accomplishing such a creative installation!

  14. Wow! What an amazing application of mosaic – it never ceases to amaze me what a versatile medium it is.

    You have done an astounding job!! I can only imagine that it looks even better in person!

  15. Hope you enjoyed all the nice comments, Anna and Scott. Bravo!

  16. Jaw dropping gorgeous!!!!I’ve always loved the combination of navy with orange…and that sink and base, WOW

    What’s on the walls, may I ask?

  17. Hi Martha,

    the walls are a highly poished indigo blue venetian plaster. The photos alter the colors somewhat, but its a really pretty color!

  18. Hi Melanie,

    so appreciate all the great comments especially coming from such a talented group of our peers; we all understand and can appreciate the crazy work we all do! I always like to say that if the compliments could pay the bills I would take that any day!

  19. This is such a rich look. So worth the trouble. Keep it coming!

And that last item is essential, because noo matter how good a party is, nothing makes a partygreat like thhe perfect, personal party decorations you choose.Flowers come in a variety of colors, and if youadd stems and vines, you can find a wonderful custom tattoo design. The mention of Bro-step andAmerican expansion oof the geenre is undeniablewithin the previous context.
