Last night's progress:
I now have around 40 hours in this mosaic. It will probably take me another 10 - 15 to finish it.
Hopefully I'll be done by the end of the weekend.
... and the mosaic isn't curved at the bottom, that's just the angle I took the photo from creating that effect. I have to shoot from an angle to keep the flash from glaring out on the glass.
I will eventually take the time (mostly involving moving a whole lot of heavy things around in the studio) to create a photo area where I can use diffused lighting and shoot the photos correctly...
