Micromosaics are a special form of mosaics using very small tesserae, including cut filato and millefiori.  At di Mosaico, you will find everything you need to create micromosaics in the traditional, Italian method.  We carry a wide range of filato, in many colors and shapes as well as the tools you need to master this art form.

The video below, from the Mosaic Art School in Ravenna, Italy, is an excellent online presentation showing the basics of the process, from melting the smalti and pulling the filato, to the cutting and setting of the filato in the substrate.
