Please email us with your mosaic questions.
I will post them on the website with the answers.

Q. How do I price my mosaic?
A. Ahhh, the age-old question. An important guideline is to design and price according to cuts. The more you cut, the higher the labor cost. Approximately 2-1/2 to 3 lbs. of smalti will cover a square foot of working space. Add the cost of your baseboard and glue, then triple the price. That’s where you start. Then add your artistic value, design value, and level of difficulty.

How do I arrange my mosaic work area?
A. At Piece Love&Smalti™ we “package to organize.” If you buy the Pinwheel Six Pack or individual smalti colors, they arrive in clear, reusable containers. We recommend using several ergonomically tilted drafting tables where you can lay out your colors as in a color wheel. Did you know that we use 30% of recycled glass in our modern smalti? And,our antique smalti contains an even higher percentage of recycled glass. I am soooo excited!

  • Is mosaics an art or craft?
  • Which came first the chicken or the egg?
