Flower-Shaped Millefiori Artist Stocking Stuffer Gift Pouch is our regular mosaic artist material and is pre-packed in a clear plastic gift pouch. Not recommended for young children who might put the pieces into their mouths. It looks like candy, and it is a choking hazard. Shaped Millefiori Glass 8mm-12mm (5/16 inch to 1/2 inch) by Mud Turtle Mosaic&trade is sold in 1.85-ounce units (approximately 55+ pieces). Instead of being round disks like regular millefiori, our Flower-Shaped Millefiori is in the shape of a five-petal flower.
What Is Millefiori?
Millefiori is a traditional form of art glass that is disk-shaped with different multicolored patterns and is used in glass fusing, jewelry, and mosaic art.
This is a problematic question because the millefiori was intended to be used as an accent instead of as area coverage, and the piece size can vary. That being said, one 2-ounce bag should cover roughly 5 or 6 square inches, but that will depend somewhat on how efficiently you nest the pieces.
The thickness varies, and tends to run between 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch. This makes it about the same thickness as most of the glass mosaic tile we sell, although some pieces slightly thicker.
In theory the millefiori can be cut using a pair of Mosaic Glass Cutters, but the pieces are already small enough to make cutting unnecessary and problematic.

Glass Fusing Compatibility
* NOTE: COE is not the only factor determining glass fusing compatibility! Chemical compatibility is an important factor as well! If you intend to use these for a glass fusing project you must try fusing a smaller test piece first, to ensure a good fuse is possible.
