Making a mosaic by the direct method: step three

Ready for grouting. To make the design more interesting I've included some pieces of willow pattern border, a few chips of mirror and some of the maker's mark (a crown and some lettering) from the light green saucer.

The glue takes several hours to dry and is best left overnight, particularly if the shards are not all flat - which tends to be the case with crockery.
