Description

3/4-inch vitreous glass mosaic tiles by Kaleidoscope come FACE-mounted on paper sheets of 25 tiles for rapid installation. The paper can be removed by soaking in water to yield loose tiles. The backs of these glass mosaic tiles are embossed with ridges to help the cement or adhesive bond more securely. Vitreous tiles are commonly used in pools, backsplashes, craft projects as well as fine art. A rich color palette is available, allowing artists to create complex images. Price is per sheet of 25 tiles. Mounting grids are available.

Coverage

With a standard grout gap of approximately 1/16 inch, one sheet of 25 tile will cover approximately 0.13 square foot. Nine (9) sheets covers 1.15 square feet. Approximately 218 loose tiles are needed to cover 1 square foot. To calculate how many sheets are needed to cover your area, divide your square footage by 1.15 and multiply by 9. You can also use our tile estimator to calculate how much you need for your project.

Compatibility

Tile thickness is 1/8 inch nominal, the same as most of the glass mosaic tile we sell, which means that these can be used with other types and brands. There are smaller versions of Kaleidoscope vitreous available, and many of the color names are the same, but do not assume that they will match exactly because our current inventory of each size often comes from different manufacturer batches.

Cutting Kaleidoscope 3/4-Inch Vitreous

We recommend using the wheel-blade Mosaic Glass Cutter we sell to cut all types of glass mosaic tile including vitreous. (Regular tile nippers are for ceramic tile, and they tend to crush glass tile.)

Use in Mosaic Art

Vitreous glass is sometimes thought of as an architectural surface covering not suitable for rendering images of any sophistication, mostly because of the limited color palette. That is not true. Mosaic is 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, and so the 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 about 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 is an opportunity to make the design stronger and more iconic.
