Celebrate your canine companion with a Marvelous Dog Mosaic Frame from Heidi Borchers. Mosaic craft projects are a unique way to add to your home decor. Use Cool2Cast to create a replica of your favorite pooch and a plain wooden frame as the canvas!

  • Craft knife
  • Waxed paper
  • Plastic container with lid (for mixing Cool2Cast)
  • Measuring cups
