They manufacture and restore artistic mosaics for flooring, murals and paintings, wall finishings, partition walls and other architectural elements.
They mainly work with ceramics, stoneware and marble. They use both the direct technique on the surface to be covered and the indirect technique, where they first carry out the mosaic in the workshop using a template and later on they place it in its final location.
They manufacture and restore mosaics of different types:
The tools they use are the classic ones of the craft:
To these, one must add the necessary conventional construction tools (large wicker basket, bucket, palette, small palette, cement mixer, diamond core cutter, grinder, multifunction rotor, trowel, plumb bob, drawing pen, rulers, squadrons, mallets, hammers, chisels, etc.) and other drawing implements (Kraft paper, carbon paper, coloured pencils, rulers, square, bevel, cellulosic glue, etc.).
Currently they also carry out some designs and projects with the aid of software applications such as Photoshop, AutoCAD or Rhinoceros. These help to adjust the images and the drafts to the measurements and real locations of the project, as well as helping in the creation of plans and presentations for clients.
