This is a small format (10mm x 10mm x 4mm) vitreous glass mosaic tile in Mid Blue. Supplied face down on a paper sheet ('paper bonded') there are 841 individual tiles per sheet. The tiles can be easily separated by soaking in warm water for 5 - 10 minutes, after which the tiles will slide off the paper. The back of every tile is ridged to aid adhesion.
These tiles are ideal for art and craft purposes. They can be used alongside the larger 2cm mosaic tiles and are particularly useful for lettering or detailed areas in larger mosaics, or by themselves in smaller mosaics.
Great for younger children (6 and above) as an alternative to using split tiles. Always take care to ensure that children are well supervised when using mosaics as they could be swallowed and there can be tiny, almost invisible, shards of glass produced when glass tiles are split.
Please don't forget to include your name and the address that you would like us to send your sample(s) to!
Remember, unlike some other companies who advertise free samples and who then charge for postage, our samples really are free - we want you to see our tiles for yourselves rather than relying on screen or printer images so we don't charge you for the tiles or the postage!
Did you know that when mosaic pieces (tesserae) are positioned as gradually larger outlines around a shape or pattern until they fill a large area this is described as Opus Musivum. The effect of this can be dramatic as it can cause the focus of the shape or pattern to appear further away or nearer to the viewer.
