We have once again been busy making beautiful handmade mosaic tiles. This time we are focused on creating mixes of black and white tiles in various patterns. These tiles just look stunning in projects, so we just needed to make more.
These tiles are made by printing colour images onto high quality paper, which is then adhered to glass tiles, using a special process that enhances the image and maintains its clarity and beauty.
Being paper backed they are suitable for indoor mosaics and have been sealed on the back to ensure that there is not issues with grouting. Weldbond adhesive or a clear dying PVA adhesive is recommended when adhering these tiles.
They have also been designed to work hand in hand with our crystal glass tile range, so you could include any of the following crystal tiles:
- Irregular Crystal Glass Tiles
- 2cm Crystal Glass Tiles
- 1cm Crystal Glass Tiles
- Rectangle Crystal Glass Tiles
- Crystal Glass Tile Strips
Add a few decorative embellishments and you have a beautiful mosaic.
Here are a few lovely examples of projects you can make using the Black & White Handmade Tiles.
They can be used whole or cut with wheeled nippers. To cut these Handmade Glass Tile we recommend the following technique:
Use wheeled nippers to cut the glass tile
Tile after being cut with wheeled nippers
Fold the tile in half before cutting the paper with scissors. Note: If the break is too irregular you can use a stanley knife to cut the paper rather than scissors.
Carefully cut the paper with scissors
Tile cut into two
Due to the paper being adhered to the back of the tiles the cuts can be more irregular than with standard glass tiles.
We have even made a few of the designs into kits, the perfect way to get started. Just click here to view our range of mosaic kits. Or click here to purchase a mix of these Black & White Handmade tiles to create your own design.
