Tips & Tricks for using No Days Mosaic Adhesives from Dan Gamaldi of Cradle of the Sun in San Francisco

   Dan Gamaldi of Cradle of the Sun contacted us to share the installation of his entryway mosaic outside his shop in San Francisco.  He underestimated the amount of time that it would take him to finish the mosaic, as he only worked on it in his "free" time; Dan generally works on commission stained glass windows for homes and offices in the Bay Area.  Over a period of four years, he really got to know the ins and outs of working with No Days Mosaic Adhesive. The approach to creating the "Waterfall City" mosaic was different than I've heard of using before. Instead of building on mesh, Dan used a base of aluminum foil prepped with No Days Mosaic Adhesive film.
Dan lined a plywood base with aluminum foil and then No Days Mosaic Adhesive film
Many of the pieces of glass he used in his design (based on "Waterfall City" by James Gurney) were small, and Dan didn't want to blow them away while heat setting the adhesive with a heat gun. So, he came up with several solutions.
For very small pieces of glass, Dan heat set the adhesive using a soldering iron.
  Among the solutions for heat setting that he came up with were: using a soldering iron for very small pieces of glass (such as millefiori), a regular clothes iron for heating small sections of the mosaic...
For heat setting small areas of the mosaic, he used an iron.
and, finally, the No Days Curing Station to heat set larger areas of the mosaic.  Using the irons and Curing Station allowed Dan to heat set portions of the mosaic without causing the adjacent adhesive to shrivel back on itself (which can happen when using a heat gun).
Dan used Streuter's No Days Curing Station to heat set large areas of the mosaic all at once.
  Visit Dan's website at Cradle of the Sun to see more pictures and read about the whole process. Below is the video of the mosaic being installed in the entryway of his shop.

The No Days Mosaic Coaster makes a great scouting or birthday party project for kids. If you want to eliminate the grouting process, clean up is faster and easier. Just space your tiles really close together before setting.

Approximate time to complete project = 1 to 1-1/2 hours

Children's Collaborative Oklahoma Mosaic with No Days Groutless

Dear Brad and Streuter crew,

Thought you might enjoy seeing the attached collaboration mosaic piece that was created by 12 budding Oklahoma artists, ages 5-7. This work of art would not have been possible without your "GROUTLess" product, AND, your willingness to work with me on pricing as a teaching artist! Many thanks from Oklahoma!

Mosaic created by 12 young artists in Oklahoma (ages 5-7)
using clear No Days Groutless Mosaic Adhesive.

Each of the twelve students were given a 7.5" x 8" piece of the map puzzle. Their only instruction was to follow the black lines with black tiles and not to use black anywhere else. They had no idea what they were creating. The excitement in the room grew as I had each student put their piece into place. The clear (Groutless) product was perfect, as they could see their "puzzle piece" through the product as they worked. We recreated the excitement on the final day by revealing this collaboration, installation, performance piece in front of the eyes of their parents.

I have just now had a moment to look through the catalog you sent with the order. If all of your products are as perfect as "GROUTLess", I look forward to testing them in the future.

Many, many abundant thanks again for making this an affordable possibility as I work with students in Oklahoma!

"Garden Window" by Nancy Keating
using No Days Mosaic Adhesive
 "I used No Days Mosaic Adhesive film for my piece, Garden Window. It was the first time using (No Days Instructor) Carrie's advice of prepping glass first by pre-melting the film. No Days is so much easier than the adhesives I have been using for glass on glass applications. Silicone is stinky and sticky on my fingers, and two part epoxy forces me to set really fast. So...Thanks, Streuter!"
