A BEAUTIFUL GIFT IDEA USING TINY TILES

They say good things come in small packages and these tiny tiles are proof!

These beautiful Moroccan tiles are made of earthenware, glazed, and fired at over 1000 degrees celsius. Their hand-made, hand-glazed process allows every tile to shine with its unique character. These slight differences mean every tile is charmingly distinctive.

Bring your tweezers to place them, as these tiles are the smallest in the world. The micro size opens up a new world of creativity! This project guides you through making a mosaic tealight using tiny tiles, but they're also perfect for small spaces and grout lines as they allow you to create incredible detail.

If you want to create a truly unique project, these are what you're looking for!

Steps

1. Choose Your Materials


2. Adhere The Tiles

Having some concept in mind is always a great idea before you start. This may be a design based on a colour theme, swirls, flowers or geometric shapes like this project.
Apply your PVA adhesive with a paintbrush in small sections, so the adhesive doesn't dry out.
Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to dry before grouting. Run your hand over the mosaic before grouting to ensure all tiles have adhered securely.

3. Grouting

When grouting, always wear gloves, as the grout will dry your hands out.
Mix a small amount of powdered grout with water until it becomes a porridge-like consistency. Once mixed, place a small amount of grout onto your tiles and rub it into the gaps between them. Once you have covered the entire mosaic, scrape off the excess and let it dry.


Wait until the grout has started to dry (the grout will become dull), and carefully clear off the excess grout with a sponge. Leave it for 24 hours, then give it a final buff-up to remove excess grout.
