Our Swampthang Glass Mosaic Tile Mix is a 1-lb assortment of 3/4-inch venetian glass tile with swampy greens, earthy browns, and bold orange. As one of our Lojee-Nojee™ based assortments, it includes mostly low-to-no grain tile with a smooth and even texture. To compare, see our Green or Brown Morjo™ Vitreous 3/4-inch assortments. Mix and match Swampthang along with these or use on its own to create woodland landscapes, fall-toned designs and more. In mixed media applications, this assortment could blend particularly well with our gemstones, minerals, and marble tile. For a similar mini-sized version, we also have the Fairy Woodland Mix.
While these tiles are hard and durable enough for outdoor installation, 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 community projects, children’s arts and crafts, and murals. The pigment quality also lends itself equally well to photorealistic mosaic images and detailed fine art.
