Crystal Stack Mosaic
My first mosaic. 48 wide vertical stack in color. 180 rows high, with support structure in the back, and an all Lego picture frame that can hold it from a single nail.
About this creation


I took a lot of time playing with the colors and size of the picture. I cropped it as tight as I could, but still wasn't happy with the low level of detail doing a 48x48 studs out, or bricks studs up. So I got the insane idea to try plates instead of bricks. It was a ton of work, but I was able to get a lot higher resolution in less space.



Starting out. Tons of 1x1 plates.


I made it this far before I realized Dark Pink was going to be the death of me.


Thank you so much SimplyBricks for supplying the few Dark Pinks I could scrape together. Even if I had to buy them only 10 at a time. :)


I started building it in 32 high sections, which made it workable, and less catastrophic if something broke. This is two sections.






The frame on the back provides a lot of stability. Every 16 rows, I used as many 1x2 plates or 2x2 plates to attach the face to the frame.

This Is Great, Especially For A First Attempt, Mosaics Are Difficult, As You Must Capture A Lot Of Detail.
