Description

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, and is sold in 2-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.

Product Coverage

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.

Compatibility

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.

Cutting Millefiori

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.
