Description

Mini Vitreous Glass Mosaic Tiles 3/8-Inch by Morjo are sold loose by the quarter kilogram (8.5 ounces = approximately 375 pieces) for use in murals, fine art, crafts, and as an architectural covering. The Morjo brand is competitively priced, and yet the quality of the firing, the colors, and the surface finish are all excellent. The color names are the same as the larger versions, but they might not match exactly due to variations in manufacturer batches. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, these are a good choice for mosaic murals and signage. Mounting grids are available.

Morjo 3/4-Inch Vitreous Glass Mosaic Tile

  • tile size: 3/8 inch (10mm
  • thickness: 1/8 nominal (4mm)
  • sales unit: 8.5 ounces (approximately 375 tiles)
  • material: glass
  • variety: vitreous
  • pigments: colorfast, UV resistant
  • durability: frost-proof, impervious to liquid
  • usage: suitable for indoor and outdoor use

Coverage

With a standard grout gap of approximately 1/32 inch, one bag of approximately 375 tiles will cover 0.48 square feet. Approximately 731 loose tiles are needed to cover 1 square foot using the standard grout gap. If you are not using a grout gap (not recommended for wet mosaics or mosaics subject to freezing precipitation), then you need about 930 tiles to cover each square foot, You can 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 larger 20mm versions of Morjo 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 Morjo 3/8-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.)

Note that there is a practical limit to how small they can be cut because the sides of the tiles are tapered, and small pieces tend to fall over. We cut halves and quarters and diagonal triangles but do not try to go small than that, at least most of the time. If you are making the fine details of your image and need to cut smaller, you can lean pieces against each other, but that can get tedious.

Using Vitreous in Mosaic Art

The Morjo brand is economical enough for use in craft projects, but it can also be used for fine art and murals. There are enough colors available in the brand itself to render sophisticated images, including naturalistic portraits and landscapes, and these can be combined with other brands of the same size.

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.
