HOW TO MAKE A LEGO MOSAIC
Monochrome comes from two Greek words. Mono means “one” and Chroma means “color”. When you put them together, it means that something is only a single color.
You can have variations of that one color, by mixing them with black or with white. A tint is when white is added to a color. A shade is when black is added to a color.
A mosaic is a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of material, such as glass, tile, stone, or in this case, plastic bricks! Mosaics as an art form have been around for thousands of years.
- Base plate
- Assorted bricks of one color variation
STEP 1: Gather brick pieces that are different hues of one color. For example: dark blue, light blue, teal, reds and pinks, light and dark greens.
STEP 2: Plan a design that will fit on your base plate. You can make a recognizable shape or design, or even make something abstract!
STEP 3: Place your bricks onto your base plate in the design of your choice.
