How do you make stained glass mosaics?

There is a pattern designed specifically for mosaic, but you don't have to limit yourself to using the single mosaic pattern. If you find a stained glass pattern, you can easily adapt to the mosaic.

The main difference between the mosaic pattern and a stained glass pattern is the distance between the glass pieces and the size of the individual pieces. When talking about glass, you can use dichroic glass squares for a real effect.

Many pieces of the mosaic are used outdoors. Due to the temperature range outside the room, a mosaic made from large pieces of glass will break over time. To avoid this, it will ensure good glass on the cement and no air bubbles under the glass.

Another way to avoid cracking is to use small pieces of glass. The larger the piece of glass, the more opportunities it will have to crack in the future.

Another factor to consider is the amount of space between individual pieces of glass. Depending on the pattern you are using, the distance between the pieces of glass should not exceed 1/4 inch.

To change the stained glass pattern into a mosaic pattern, you must first resize it to fit the size of your mosaic prints. Then cut smaller individual pattern pieces from 1/16 to 1/8. This will give you a distance of 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
