The term pigment mosaicism is proposed to encompass all pigment anomalies caused by chromosomal mosaicism. This includes not only hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation along the lines of Blaschko but also those with phylloid, checkerboard pattern and patchy pigmentation without midline separation.
These conditions are typically associated with extracutaneous manifestations. Neurological deficits like epilepsy, learning disabilities and spasticity are common. Musculoskeletal abnormalities are often present as well such as facial dysmorphism, asymmetry of limbs, syndactyly and kyphoscoliosis.
Mosaic Arts & Crafts Resin
Mosaics are a craft and art that use stone, glass, shells, ceramics, beads, mirror and other objects as “tiles” or small tesserae to create decorative wall and floor pieces. They can be created by professional mosaic artists or craftsmen, but are also popular with hobbyists and even some homeowners.
Mosaic is a type of artwork that requires careful planning and execution to achieve the desired results. It is a complex and detailed skill, and can be a difficult task for beginners to master. Historically, the mosaic process was a laborious and slow process that required a lot of preparation before the artist could begin to work on his or her project. The most common adhesive for mosaics was mortar, which served as the base for the tesserae facing and was applied to the ground or wall before laying out the design.
However, modern day mosaics can be achieved with a much more efficient and quick method. Today, most mosaics are completed by professionals and can be found in homes, businesses, public spaces and museums worldwide.
There are a number of different resins that can be used to create mosaic artwork, and the right one depends on the requirements of your Mosaic Pigment project. If you’re a professional who needs to coat a large piece of wall or a DIYer who wants to embed objects in a clear sphere, you’ll want to choose an epoxy that has been specially formulated for your specific artistic and craft needs.
