Some of you have selected flags with narrow lines in them, such as the narrow swirly lines in the flag above.The narrow lines in the cartoons of your flags are lines for you to follow. There's no need for you to try to make them as narrow as they are in the actual flag. Just follow the lines as you lay your tesserae.
Finally, INTEGRATING A TOUCH OF GOLD INTO YOUR PIECE.
Because we'll be using gold mirror glass for the border at the time of installation, we need you to use a touch of gold mirror glass in your piece. This will help tie the whole piece together. If you don't have any gold mirror glass at home, Mosaic on a Stick sells small strips of it so you can purchase a small strip when you pick up your pieces. Take a look at the Guede Mazaca flag below. There's only a small amount of gold.--That works!
