The backs of the tiles are textured with grooves to help adhesives and mortars bond more securely. Vitreous tiles are used in backsplashes, tables, bars, craft projects, murals, and other mosaic art projects. Economical yet very colorful, this material cuts easily and can be used indoors and outdoors. Mounting grids are available.

Coverage

One bag of approximately 150 tiles will cover 0.7 square feet assuming a standard grout gap of approximately 1/16 inch. To cover 1 square foot with a standard grout gap, 218 tiles are needed. Most mosaic mounting paper is 1.15 square feet and requires 225 tiles (15 tiles x 15 tiles). Use our tile estimator to calculate how much you need for your project. Add about 5% extra to account for cutting scrap.

Compatibility

These can be mixed and used with most brands of 3/4 inch mosaic tile because their thickness is 1/8 inch nominal (4mm), which is a common industry standard. The smaller size of this brand use the same color names, but they might not match exactly because they might come from different firings in the manufacturer’s kiln. Also, figurative mosaic art made from uncut mosaic tile usually looks better when only one size tile is used, so if most of your tile is uncut, think twice about mixing sizes.

Cutting Hakatai 3/4-Inch Vitreous

Hakatai vitreous tile can be cut into halves, quarters, triangles and irregular shapes using the Mosaic Glass Cutter we sell. A regular tile nipper should not be used because they tend to crush glass mosaic tile and create too much waste. Cutting a few pieces and choosing the best to use is more efficient than trying to trim a piece to size.

Use in Mosaic Art

For advice on how to glue and grout these mosaic tiles, please see our Mosaic FAQs page or our How To Mosaic blog.

Vitreous glass is sometimes thought of as architectural tiling due to the limited color palette and not suitable for rendering images of any sophistication. That is not true. Mosaic is always an exercise in using a limited color palette. The exact hue or shade an artist would prefer to use is often not available even in premium lines of tile, so a common solution is to use approximate colors cut into smaller pieces and positioned together so that they blend visually. For example, if the exact shade of cyan blue is not available, try using a shade slightly lighter and a shade slightly darker in a field of small pieces mixed together.

If this seems daunting, then spend some time browsing pictures of ancient Greek and Roman mosaic and note what sophisticated designs they were able to create with as few as seven or eight distinct colors. Modern vitreous glass is a rainbow of intense colors by comparison. Also keep in mind that simplifying your design to use a more limited color palette usually makes the design stronger and more iconic.
