Introduction to Smalti Mosaics

Have you wanted to try working with smalti but weren't sure how to get started?  Our Introduction to Smalti kit has everything you need!

  • 1-1/4 lb of smalti mix
  • 1/4 lb of practice smalti
  • 6" wood frame
  • Wheeled mosaic nippers
  • Curved tweezers
  • Weldbond (2 oz)
  • Mosaic mesh
  • 8 page instructional guide

This kit comes with a pre-designed mosaic pattern - a Solomon's Knot - a classic design in Ancient Roman mosaics.  We have simplified the design for this kit so that you only need to make straight cuts.

We provide step-by-step instructions, including pictures and links to online videos, to help you complete this project.  Covered are the concepts of creating a mosaic cartoon, the principles of andamento, using the direct method with mosaic mesh and cutting and placing smalti. 

There are three colors to choose in this kit.  Take a look at our smalti color palette and indicate in the box below the colors you would like, notating which of the three will be the background color.  If you are having difficulty choosing a color, click here for an article explaining tertiary color.  Another suggestion is to consider your school colors.

 If you want to give this kit as a gift, it comes already boxed and ready to wrap!
