Mosaic Art Creator | Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

 

1. What is special about Mosaic Art Creator (MAC)?

You can use any photo you wish and because you can use any photo, you can create mosaics of yourself, friends, family, pets, tourist attractions, the list goes on. The algorithm behind the Mosaic Art Creator uses sophisticated, advanced facial recognition and proprietary software to detect and enhance the photo prior to rendering which produces more detailed images. Finally, you are not restricted to 1 base plate, you can have more than 1 base plate to give you more choices and better resolution.

2. What sizes of mosaic are available?

The mosaics are based on a baseplate measuring 38cmx38cm (48x48 studs). You can currently choose a mosaic with 1x1, 2x1 or 2x2 baseplates.

3. What pictures make the best mosaics?

Pictures with sharp definition and contrast make for better mosaics, we suggest you edit your photo on your phone/iPad if necessary. MAC will render your photo and then give you 3 different options to choose from in terms of the balance of black, white and grey.

4. Do you do colour mosaics?

At this time we only offer black, dark grey (dark stone grey), light grey (medium stone grey), and white mosaics.

5. Can I buy just the bricks without creating a mosaic?

The bricks used for MAC are only available with a purchase of a mosaic bundle.

6. Can I buy top up bags?

Top up bags are not required as each order will include extra bricks to ensure your mosaic can be successfully completed.
