Christmas 2022 for those who love art and the handmade world
The In Tessere mosaic school has created many mosaic kits with various subjects taken from the mosaic tradition but also contemporary.
Traditional subjects of the Roman or Byzantine mosaic , images of the famous mosaics of Pompeii or Aquileia.
For those who love contemporary art instead we find subjects of modern and contemporary inspiration such as the self-portrait by Van Gogh or the famous Dora Maar by Picasso, the face of Frida Khalo to be made in mosaic.
Give a mosaic kit with a subject of your choice
An excellent DIY gift idea for mosaic art lovers is a personalized mosaic kit, that is, created from a subject of your choice, your photo or an image you like.
The customized kits are made upon request and are equipped with all the tools for making the mosaic: tools, utensils and marble tiles, video tutorials and multilingual illustrated guides.
To request a customized mosaic kit, just send us an email with the image to be translated into mosaic firstname.lastname@example.org: we will ship the kit within a few days of your request.
Personalized DIY gift ideas
Among the personalized mosaic kits we have the Dog Kit and the Cat Kit : starting from the photo of your pet, we translate the image into an executive drawing and compose the mosaic kit to then be able to build it yourself.
Note on the marbles of the custom mosaic kit
We try to find marbles that have colors as similar as possible to the tones in your photo, but we must specify that it is impossible to find the same colors.
As with any kit, even the personalized mosaic gift ideas will be accompanied by hand-cut marble tiles in a color similar (but not identical) to the color of the chosen image, but this is the beauty of artistic craftsmanship!
