Porcelain Tiles Mottled Glazes 1-Inch 30 Pieces are sold on sheets of fiberglass mesh, which can be pulled off or cut apart with scissors. The faces are not flat but are pillowed out in a rounded bulge that makes the center higher than the edges. The backs of the tiles are unglazed and have grooves to help adhesives and mortars bond more securely.

One sheet of 30 pieces will cover 0.23 square feet assuming a standard grout gap of approximately 1/8 inch. To cover 1 square foot, you would need 4 sheets plus 1 tile, which would give you 121 tiles arranged 11 pieces x 11 pieces. We sell these for use as accents instead of area coverage.
These are slightly thicker than the glass tile we sell, but that isn’t a problem if you are wanting your mosaic to have texture with tiles and regions that are a little higher than others. (Raised elements might be problematic on a table top or floor, but for other mosaics, texture and dimension are an easy way to add visual interest to your work.)
Cutting Glazed Porcelain Tile
Glazed Porcelain Tile can be cut using the Compound Tile Nipper we sell.
Use in Mosaic Art
These can be used to make borders around mosaic mirrors and mosaic pictures, and they can also be used as accents in mixed-media mosaic artwork made from various types of tile. You can mix glass, porcelain, and stone tiles with souvenirs made of durable materials.
