Picassiette – pronounced (peek ah set), loosely translated means trash art, has been an art form
for ages. Yesterday, a few of the ‘wildcat wives’ and girls, got together and created little
trash art treasures! The process is simple, great for all ages. Choose an object, any object
cover it in tile adhesive/grout (Lowes) and quickly arrange broken shards of old pottery,
jewelry, keys, buttons, marbles, bottle caps, scrabble tiles, typewriter keys and odds & ends.
Let it dry over night. When it’s convenient, mix sanded tile grout with enough water to mix
(the drier the better) and basically cover your project with the mud mixture, working it into
all the cracks and crevices. Then using a household sponge and a bucket of water, begin the
process of removing the mud. Getting it all off is a little slow going but fun and therapeutic.
Speaking of therapeutic. Did I mention how fun it is to break dishes? If only you could have
heard the squeals. I like this craft a lot! I collect broken stuff for this very purpose. It always
reminds me of our lives and the way it can chip, crack and break us into pieces. However, when
we give them to God, and make Him the master of our broken pieces. He takes whole mess and
does the unimaginable….He turns us into His masterpiece.
