Until now our impressionist mosaics have been created from marble or semi-precious stones, but we've recently turned our attention to a little-noticed jewel with a special place in American culture; beer bottle caps. With the help of our own software, we evaluate each tile placement based on color, contrast and internal marking, with every possible rotation considered. After many iterations, which includes manual replacements, the image begins to take on its stunning detail, smooth color transitions, and crisp edges.
Working with tens of thousands of beer crowns with a relatively limited color range is no mean feat, but it pays off with rich, sparkling, eye-catching detail.
