Description

Millefiori Glass 8mm-12mm (5/16 inch to 1/2 inch) by Mud Turtle Mosaic™ is sold in 2-ounce units (approximately 55+ pieces). It is a next-generation product that is much more affordable than traditional Italian millefiori and is actually superior in several ways. For starters, the glass used is translucent and semi-translucent instead of being fully opaque, and this makes the colors more vibrant. Second, the Mud Turtle Mosaic is more cleanly cut and flame polished, so the pieces are smooth with a molded appearance instead of the rough, irregular, and uneven pieces usually seen in Italian millefiori, which is much more expensive.

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, usually running between 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch. This makes it about the same thickness as most of the glass mosaic tile we sell, with 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.
