Mosaic Tile - Types And Variety To Suit Your Style
Addtime£º2008-5-22 ¡¡¡¡
Usually all types of glass ceramic and stone material can be utilized as mosaic tile. Beginners like to use vitreous glass mosaic tile. The term "vitreous" refers to a glassy stone like material that appears to be a plain sheet of transparent glass.
There are several types of glass mosaic tile available to choose from including the following:
a)Iridescent mosaic tile
b)Metallic mosaic tie
c)Swirled mosaic tile
d)Mini mosaic tile
e)Vitreous glass mosaic tile
The faces of almost all glass mosaic tiles are flat and the backs of the swirled, metallic, vitreous and mini tiles are embossed with small ridges in order to facilitate secured glue bonding. Almost all glass mosaic tiles can be used for outdoor and indoor purposes. Here are some of the most common and famous types of glass mosaic tile:
a)Iridescent glass mosaic tile:
This type of glass mosaic tile is available with a removable mesh sheet. Each iridescent glass mosaic tile is about 15mmx15m and over 1/8" thick. Most sheets contain around thirty six tiles. You can also avail larger sheet sizes. The mesh backing this tile comes mounted on can be easily removed via soaking in hot water. You can also glue the tiles with the mesh in place as desired. The mesh is useful as it provides consistent grout spacing between the tiles. If you are looking for the best, you can go for the finest Italian mosaic glass made via the tiles fired at high temperature with mineral salts in order to get the most desired iridescent finish. The final result is an opalescence that shines like pearl.
b)Metallic glass mosaic tile:
Metallic glass mosaic tiles are widely known for their brilliant shine with little metallic flakes swirled throughout the glass. These flakes possess a bright copper golden color and the final result is awesome. These tiles arrive face mounted on paper. All you require to do is to soak these tiles in water in order to remove the paper. Each metallic glass mosaic tile is around ¾"x¾" and over 1/8" thick.
c)Swirled glass mosaic tiles:
Swirled glass mosaic tiles are usually marbleized with beautiful swirls of different colored glass like the superior variety of stained glass. The swirled glass mosaic tiles are molded into individual tiles. These tiles are then ready to be utilized for various purposes without any need for cutting. These tiles are available face-mounted on paper. All you need to do is to soak them into water and remove the paper.
d)Vitreous glass mosaic tiles:
These glass mosaic tiles are sold in loose bags of two hundred and twenty five tiles. Each vitreous glass mosaic tile is ¾"x¾" and over 1/8" thick. This tile is known to be the most economical glass mosaic tile. These tiles are very popular with amateur crafters. You can easily get a full pallet of colors with beautiful designs and patterns.
