PRLog - March 21, 2011 - TAMPA, Fla. -- Marble mosaics have been around for over four thousand years ago, since the 4th and 3rd century BC, when the Mesopotamians pieced together thin marble tiles. Mosaics made from pebbles adorned the floors of ancient Greek buildings.
Mosaic art has transformed over the years to include different techniques, subjects and processes. Today, marble mosaics have emerged as unique and intricate design pieces that are incorporated into modern interior and exterior applications. Unfortunately, working with today’s marble tile can be challenging as most are 3/8” thick. This thickness can make nipping and shaping them into intricate designs difficult. However, a new product just introduced to the Craft industry, Antiquity Mosaics revitalizes the thin marble tile used by the ancients. This new mosaic product is an amazing 3/16” thick and is available in a wonderful collection of some of the most popular marbles available.
Antiquity Mosaics marble tiles can be used to restyle table tops, vases, wooden chairs and trays, coasters, around mirrors and on backsplashes. The beauty of marble is in its wildly unpredictable nature, adding charm and distinct personality to every project created. Even if you are new at mosaic art, the easy-to-follow patterns included with the tiles, resemble the paint-by-number technique; simply place the stone in the color coded boxes to reveal patterns based on Greek and Roman mosaic designs.
