Our Sunset Glass Mosaic Tile Mix is a bright assortment of vitreous glass tile in shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, and purple. Add vibrant warmth to your mosaic with neon yellow, papaya orange, and pastel pink. Burnt peach, violets and primary red add depth and dimension.
This 1-lb mix combines Morjo™ Vitreous with our new low-grain Lojee-Nojee™ tiles. As a result, this mix offers a vivid range of color and texture. The addition of Lojee-Nojee contributes a high percentage of tile with little-to-no grain. It also offers a great way to sample a mix of regular vitreous and low-grain tile. Compare to our Red Orange Yellow and Pink Purple Morjo™ Vitreous assortments. Combine Sunset with these assortments or add bags of individual colors to enhance the color range for your project.
These tiles are hard and durable enough for outdoor installation, yet they can quickly be cut into halves, quarters and triangles with little force using a pair of mosaic glass cutters. The grooved side bonds adhesive more securely and also makes for easier cutting. To plan your design, use a mounting grid.

Cutting Glass Tile
We recommend the Mosaic Glass Cutter for cutting all types of glass mosaic tile including these. Note, however, that there is a limit to how small they can be cut. Due to their tapered edges, small pieces will tend to tip over. We advise cutting halves and quarters and diagonal triangles, and not much smaller than that. For creating outlines and other details, check out our Rectangle Border Tiles or our Outliners Mosaic Sticks™.
Use in Mosaic Art
The affordability, ease of use and durability of these tiles makes them suitable for outdoor projects such as garden décor. The pigment quality also lends itself equally well to photorealistic mosaic images and fine art.
