Tools, Tiles, and Supplies
We are a retail mosaic supply store, let us research the online stores so that you do not need to pay expensive shipping costs while waiting for your supplies to arrive. Stop in to see our colorful assortment of tesserae and tile, see exactly what you are buying and walk out ready to start creating. Like an old-fashioned penny candy store you will not be able to resist the colors and selection of our eye “candy”.
We are not an on-line store, we are brick and mortar, our inventory is constantly changing so the best way to see our inventory is to stop in for a visit. If you are not super close feel free to give us a call, we know our inventory and probably have what you are looking for. We strive to provide supplies for all levels; for the experienced mosaic artists as well as the occasional hobbyist.
Our selection includes Italian made Venetian glass tiles and Smalti, Mexican smalti, stained glass, mirror glass, gems, stones, ceramic tile and other specialty products for the experienced mosaic artist. We also carry a large color assortment of craft tile for the occasional mosaic hobbyist as well as some fun shaped tiles to give your mosaic pieces your unique style. Come in and visit us to check out all our supplies. Prices range from $10 - $14 per pound for ceramic and vitreous glass. Smalti is $26 per pound.
You will find a variety of prepared substrates (surfaces) including mirrors, picture frames, candle holders, and small table tops and bases. Supply varies and if we don't have what you are looking for we can help you find it! We also carry Wedi Board®, a light foam underlayment with cement faces that is waterproof and suitable for water bearing areas both indoor and outdoor. We also carry fiberglass mesh and Weldbond to adhere your pieces to the substrate.
