General Information: Small hexagon and square tiles are perfect to create mosaic wall art. The tiles can be applied to mortar or adhesive prepared walls in any pattern. The mosaic tiles are gorgeous from a distance, and can be used for entire wall surfaces. Tiles are created from Philippine Capiz shells, giving them a luminous, ethereal effect. Tiles are mounted on strong substrate to keep the design consistent, resist shearing, and increase flame retardance. Tiles are suitable for dry applications; they don’t work as well in a kitchen or bathroom setting. Tiles come in 12”x12” sections, and are priced by square foot.
