Millefiori ROUGH CUTS & THINS Assortment contains some pieces that are thinner than glass mosaic tile, which means they might not be useful for some mosaic jobs. The diameter range is nominally 9 to 10 mm, which is about 3/8 inches. This assortment is sold in 2-ounce units (approximately 65+ pieces).
Please do NOT order if you cannot tolerate a certain amount of scrap or if you need perfectly flat disks.
Most disks are not perfectly flat. Many slope from one side to the other. Some pieces have sharp edges or are too thin. These problematic pieces couldn’t be used in a mosaic table top, but they could be used in a small mosaic icon or some other piece of micromosaic.
What Is Millefiori?
Millefiori is a traditional form of art glass that is disk-shaped with different multicolored patterns and is commonly used in 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 1.5 to 2 square inches, but that will depend somewhat on how efficiently you nest the pieces.
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.
