New Recycled Glass Mosaic Tile Assortments

Color family assortments of 12mm recycled glass mosaic tile are now available. The 12mm Elementile brand of tile is some of our most affordable tile. It also cuts into extremely small pieces with minimal glass dust, shards or scrap.

Recycled glass mosaic tile by Elementile is now available in 12mm color assortments. It is our easiest tile to use, and it is some of our most affordable tile.

This is the same tile that I wrote about for use in micromosaic art because the homogeneous microstructure of the material allows it to be cut into extremely small pieces without a lot of random breaks or scrap. What that means in practical terms is that you could buy a single bag of Assorted 12mm Elementile and have all the tile you need to make a small-yet-highly-detailed mosaic on a 4″ x 4″ piece of plywood or coaster and still have tile left over!

    Aren’t these tiles too small to be cut? I am trying to cut slivers of glass to make tiger stripes for a garden stone (memorial stone for my cat). I’m completely new at this and was simply planning on making a mosaic stepping stone from a silly kit. Once I started planning it out, I decided I needed colors and shapes that weren’t in the kit. Any suggestions on what I should buy and how to start? From some of the youtube videos I’ve watched, it appears that you can buy sheets of certain colors of glass. Also not sure what tools to buy. I believe I need a pistol grip and a breaking pliers?? Please let me know if you can.
    Thanks so much.

      Hi Melissa,
      We cut the recycled glass tiles all the time using a mosaic glass cutter.
