One often feels the need to perform an artistic activity to find oneself and recreate spiritual balance. Whoever wishes to learn the mechanisms behind a micromosaic will discover endless creative possibilities by playing with its plasticity and colours. The technique provides countless opportunities to experiment. Making micromosaics requires enthusiasm, tenacity, curiosity, comparisons and the study of history of art. It is challenging and demands a spirit of self-sacrifice. But after mastering the technique, the way ahead becomes easy and extremely satisfying. The purpose of this handbook, based on personal experience, is to hopefully inform the public at large and encourage young people to undertake an artistic education that will open the doors of a fascinating hands-on activity. Experimentation and the search for new subject-matter and applications can be as satisfying as it was in the past.
