Diabolik: from the drawing to the stone comics

After leafing through several Diabolik publications, I choose the framing to examine, in order to start the realisation of the mosaic. Then, I have to enlarge and reproduce the drawing on the wooden panel.

The laying step is very important: it’s necessary to insert each “tessera” (the individual fragment of marble, or other material) in the cement binder for at least two thirds of its thickness.
The mosaic structure takes shape through the realisation of small portions.
