BIG Ovoid Blue Red Glass Beads are large and chunky and sold by the piece. These beads are GIGANTOSAURUS, which means they best pressed into mortar or concrete instead of being glued to a flat surface.
This is a problematic question because beads was intended to be used as an accent instead of as area coverage, and the piece size is large.
BIG Ovoid Blue Red Glass Beads are over 3/4 inch in diameter, which is thicker than mosaic of the glass mosaic tile we sell. For this reason, these beads are best used by pressing into a bed of thinset mortar or a stepping stone mold filled with concrete.
Cutting BIG Ovoid Blue Red Glass Beads
These beads are too large to be cut using a Mosaic Glass Cutter because they won’t fit into the jaws. These beads are best used uncut.
