Description

Designing a Roman Mosaic Border

This is the first of a series of posts in which I will be showing you how how to design a Roman Mosaic Border for your own Mosaics. The designs I provide are all inspired by the actual Roman mosaics I document during my travels across what used to be the Roman Empire.

These designs or patterns can be created on a computer by using simple graphic elements which you can download for free. (I provide the links further down).

The Bicolor Triangles Border

The pattern of this simple and elegant border has been used in the House of the Birds in Italica close to Sevilla in Spain.

It is one of the two patterns (I will later publish the second one) used to separate the individual birds on one of the the magnificent Mosaics of that house.

Designing the Border

This border is created by combining 8 elements :

  • 4 corners
  • 4 segments

I have designed 2 ways to generate the border from its elements

  • By using Graphic softwares
  • By Using a Spreadsheet

Graphic method

In this method, we create our border by copying and pasting the elements within a graphic software. I use GIMP (a free open source software). I am sure Photoshop or other softwares offer the same capabilities.

Here is the video about the Graphic method

Spreadsheet method

In this method, we design our mosaic border by copying, pasting and moving elements within a spreadheet. I use Libre-Office,  (an other free open source software). I have provided a Microsoft Excel file whic can be opened by most modern spreadsheets.
