Can I return unused materials?

Unfortunately we cannot accept unused products, except in cases where the error lies at our end. Please contact us firs to discuss any returns.

What can I mosaic on?

You can mosaic on almost anything. Ensure the surface is clean and solid enough to support the weight of mosaic.

What do I need to make a mosaic?

Buy or borrow a book in order to learn the basic techniques. Following an introductory course is always a good idea.

Why are some colors more expensive than others?

The materials used in the manufacturing process vary in cost. Red, Orange and Yellow use Cadmium, a very expensive mineral. Pink uses 24 karat gold as a stabilizing agent and is therefore the most expensive color to manufacture.

Can I mix glass and ceramic tiles?

As long as the colors look right, you can mix any materials, except that you need to make sure they are close to being the same thickness. You don’t have to worry about thickness if you are pressing them into wet concrete of course. On the other hand, a difference in thickness might add interest to a fine art mosaic not used as a surface.

Can I use stone and glass mosaic tile together?

The two materials usually have different thickness. If you are pushing the tiles into concrete or mortar, then it doesn’t matter. If you are gluing to a surface, the difference in heights will be visible. This makes grouting a little more difficult.

How can I avoid ordering the wrong color tile?

We carry sample sets (see our free sample request section) and we can put together sample sets for you.

 

 

How do I cut glass and glass mosaic tile?

You need a mosaic glass cutter that has two blades shaped like wheels. A regular tile nipper tends to crush most glass but can be used with certain types of vitreous glass mosaic tile.See our Shop on line for our recommendation.
