Red Assortment Small Glass Beads are smaller beads sold in 2 ounce assortments of approximately 60+ pieces. These beads are competitively priced by weight for use in mosaic art, and are generally small enough (6 to 12mm) to be glued to a flat surface.
This is a problematic question because beads was intended to be used as an accent instead of as area coverage, and the piece size can vary. One 2-ounce assortment covers roughly 2+ square inches.
The Red Assortment Small Glass Beads are usually smaller than most of our lampwork beads, and this means most of them can be glued to a flat surface with glass mosaic tile without sticking up too far. However, grouting any mosaic made from pieces of uneven thickness requires a little more effort and care than grouting a mosaic of tile of uniform thickness.
Cutting Red Assortment Small Glass Beads
These beads are small enough to be used without the need to cut them.
