    Can I do this in my bathroom sink(wash basin) ? What precautions do I take or extra steps to do, so it doesn't come off when the sink is being used?

    My question is more in the form of a suggestion.

    Why not glue the gems onto some mesh first so you can take your time and map out your pattern? You know...just like when you're buying sheets of those small tiles for a bathroom - they're on a mesh sheet to keep the pattern consistent.

    Why can't WE do that? And where would we get such stuff??

    Otherwise, you're having to race the glue gunk on the wall to get your gems on in time before it dries.

    Just a thought. :)

    Needs some kind of trim on each side

    Very pretty and the trend with some penny round tiles is too not end with perfect "lines", but tapering the sides, which was not the same from sink to mirror on left and right would drive me bonkers. I understand trying to be the same width as both the sink backsplash and the mirror, but that part didn't work for me. Lovely outcome though and a great inspiration. Pretty and inexpensive. I love to collect beach glass and these give that same "beachy" vibe.
