Mosaic Tile Gifts
Most artists prefer to choose their own materials, so buying art supplies as a gift can be problematic.
However, we offer several options that minimize the stress of choosing.
Mosaic Art Supply sells Gift Certificates in amounts
of $30, $50 and $100. The certificates can be mailed to you or directly to the recipient. If this is a last-minute gift, we can even email
you an electronic copy of the certificate that you can print out at home.
Mosaic Starter Kits
We also have a Mosaic Starter Kit With Compound Nipper that is the perfect way to
equip someone new to mosaic with the essential tools needed to work with glass, porcelain and ceramic. Note that our kit is NOT a children's project kit with
materials for making one particular design. Instead, our kit contains the same tools we use in our studio for executing commissioned artwork and is intended to
outfit your artist to pursue their own unique design. The kit contains an 8-ounce bottle of Weldbond adhesive and two pounds of sanded grout plus a small
selection of glass mosaic tile, which allows your artist to make a simple trivet or mosaic plaque before planning more ambitious projects.
Hint: An ideal gift would be the Mosaic Starter Kit plus a Gift Certificate.
The kit comes in two versions. The kit with the compound tile nipper
should be ordered if you think your artist might want to work with stone or porcelain. We have our more economical
Mosaic Starter Kit that
has a regular tile nipper for artists who only use these harder materials in limited quantities.
Both kits contain a mosaic glass cutter.
This starter kit comes with the compound tile nipper, which is used for cutting stone, porcelain and other hard
ceramics, including "unbreakable" varieties of dinnerware.
Our original starter kit costs a little less and contains a regular tile nipper. The regular tile nipper
can be used on a variety of materials (other than glass), but it is mostly used for glazed ceramic tile, which is relatively soft.
Mosaic Tile Assortments
Mosaic Tile Assortments are great for giving your artist a sampling of many
of the things we sell.
