What can I use for a DIY mosaic? This can be something like a tabletop, stepping stone, or piece of plywood. It can be anything, but something with a flat, hard surface. Tesserae: Your tesserae are the small items you use to make your mosaic design. Traditionally, these are colored marbles, glass pieces, pottery fragments, or small tiles.
What surfaces can you mosaic on? Sturdy, well-built objects made of metal, wood, terra cotta, or concrete work well as base objects for a mosaic. The decorative mosaic pieces will adhere to just about any surface except items made from flimsy plastics that bend and bow.
