Artistic Mom Makes Amazing Mosaic with 10,000 ‘Dots’ of Play-Doh

Written by

 

One day, artist and mother of three Lacy Knudson was playing with Play-Doh with her children when she serendipitously mixed some colours together and made her first ‘dot’. It dawned on her that these dots could be a creative way to make art and still be with her children at the same time. Play-Doh mosaics, or Dozayix were born.

The artwork A New World was made from seventy-five 5oz jars, or 23 lbs of play doh. Each dot is about 0.5 inches (smaller than a penny) and Lacy used roughly 10,000 of them to create the amazing mosaic below. It was her first artwork completed in this style and she has since created two more pieces which you can find on her website where you can also find links to prints and greeting cards available for sale.
