Frequently Asked Questions About Stained Glass CobblesÂ· Are these real glass or are they plastic ? They are real glass from sheets of American made stained glass.Â· I would love to make my own mosaics, but I cringe at the idea of breaking glass, would these work for mosaics? Yes, they were made for crafters just like you. Each sheet of stained glass is broken into over a thousand unique pieces then separated by size and color. They are available in three size selections; MiniCobblets, Cobbles, and Big Guy Cobbs.Â· Are they safe? Yes, each piece has been softly rounded for safer handling. You may find a few pointy pieces that can be sanded down if necessary. Please wear protective eyewear if sanding.Â· What kind of adhesive do I need? Just a little dab of a clear glass bonding adhesive will adhere Cobbles to most any surface. Make sure to use an adhesive that has a low viscosity (thick). Runny glues tend to take longer to set and your glass Cobbles may move.Â· Do I need to grout? If you are using them in a mosaic application that will be outside or in an environment where they can accumulate dirt I would advise you to use grout. Â· Can I buy Cobbles in solid color selections? Yes, all the sizes are available in solid colors as well as mixed combinations. You have your choice in shades of ambers, gold, blues, greens, roses, purples, and clear.Â· How do I know how much that I will need? One ounce of cobbles will cover approximately a 3" x 3" square with 1/8" gap between each. Â· Where can I get project ideas? We will send you a free project sheet with your order. You can also find projects on the Internet with the search term "free mosaic patterns using stained glass".
