shvuntz,

Frances is our local spiritual leader in the world of Twirly Bits - Mosaic finish on Wood Fired Ovens.

This link will take you to her project -

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/9/po...s-2991-18.html (Pompeii Oven in Switzerland: the Saga Continues...)

about the end of the mosaic stage. It should be interesting reading for you to go through the full thread, as there is plenty of information on the detail of mosaic..

Good luck with it all and keep us posted on your progress!

JED

The oven shouldn't get hot at all on the outside (that's what all the insulation is for) so you can use whatever you'd usually use for an outside mosaic. One rule of thumb is to use products for outdoor swimming pools, they're bound to be weather and water proof.

I put mosaic on my oven (if you want to follow the somewhat lengthy thread below) and there are a couple more on the forum, RTflorida's springs to mind.

As a person who's always ready to look a a new mosiac, and who thinks there can't be too many mosaic-covered WFOs, is there any chance of a picure of your tables or bathrooms?
