'Roman Mosaics in Miniature'

A series of mosaic kits following patterns which are small scale replicas of the originals. Here you will find geometric patterns from across the Roman Empire. You can become totally absorbed in this fine art on a scale allowing you to reproduce mosaics that were originally much larger. 

Suggested age 14 years+

NB these kits are not suitable as a school project due to the time involved and the tesserae size. 

The tesserae (mosaic tiles) all require cutting down. The tesserae supplied are 10mm x 10mm x 4mm, each one of which needs to be cut into four. From these 5mm x 5mm x 4mm you will also need to cut some triangle and other shapes. The material is an unglazed ceramic so is very easy to cut, the mini nippers in the tools section are sufficient but if you have tile nippers these are even better.

Setting the tesserae. You will need to be fairly dextrous with your fingers and a lot of the time I will use tweezers to place the pieces. 

Each full kit comes with;

  • Tesserae
  • Glue
  • Baseboard
  • Pattern plus carbon copy paper
  • Detailled instructions including a colour image of the mosaic to work from

Each basic kit doesnot have the baseboard or glue to save on shipping costs:

  • Tesserae
