MiniMAG™ Micro Mosaic Art Glass 4 oz is untumbled shards & pieces of American-made stained glass in colors chosen for pigment density and opacity for use in micro mosaic artwork. We also sell individual colors of American-made stained glass in 6-inch sheets if you need an individual color. Each bag is a random assortment of our most popular colors, in sizes suitable for cutting into micro mosaic tesserae.
Caution: Sharp Edges
Stained glass is usually sharper than regular molded glass mosaic tile, so extra care must be used in cutting and handling and in grouting to ensure that sharp edges are not left exposed. At the studio, we sometimes cut up sheets of stained glass into pieces and then swirl the tiles around in a plastic bucket with a little water to knock off the razor slivers from the freshly-cut edges (called flash or groze).
Each bag is 4 oz of stained glass shards & pieces. For micro mosaic, coverage will vary heavily depending on how small you are cutting the pieces and how much waste is produced as cutting scraps.
The thickness is approximately 1/8 inch and nominally the same as the 3/8-inch and 3/4-inch glass mosaic tile we sell.
MiniMAG™ Micro Mosaic Art Glass can be cut quickly with minimal force using our Mosaic Glass Cutters.
