6 Ways to Mosaic Tile Storage & Organize
When you are obsessed with Mosaic Arts and would like to try different mosaic styles, you certainly buy various tiles, like glass, stone, porcelain, marble. etc. Besides other accessories and tools, your workplace will be like a mini warehouse. If you don’t put them in good order, the worktop will turn into a mess after finishing handmade. Or when we have a tutorial lesson, it will be crazy if all materials are not at your fingertips.
So it’s necessary to have a tool to help us sort those tiles. Here, I would like to introduce 6 ways for your reference. For better advice, you are welcome to leave your comments and share with us.
01 Exquisite Cup
For those beautiful ornaments, I am very willing to hold them in a special and exquisite container. I believe it is the favorite hobby of every girl. So I boldly take out a cup of Gongfu Tea. It’s the right size to hold about 100 pcs tiles, which are 1cm square. It is certainly a good partner when I do mosaic tile crafts. I am considering possessing a series of cups at my workplace. Um, what do you think?
02 Grid Box with Lip
When applying the tiles on an ornament, it will take much time to find the proper color if all tiles are mixed together, especially when we need a specific color. With the help of these multi girds, we can assort the tiles in an order via colors or materials. Covered with a lip, it can protect tiles against dust. Locked with clasp, the tiles will not scatter when you carry it out. Here are two kinds of grid. The first one is a rectangle box with grids and another one is a round box with grids.
03 Open-air Grid Box
As you can see in the first picture, I actually used a box originally holding clothes accessories. Considering it to take out easily, I put some disposable cups into grids. The facts proved that it’s a successful case to reuse old things.
If you pursue top grade containers in studio or exquisite shops, the wooden grid box will be a good choice. The box was polished smoothly for each side and corners. Every grid is deep enough to hold a lot of mosaic tiles. The other replacement choice is plastic material, which is cheaper than wood. For both of them, according to practical needs, you decide how many grids you need to buy. Pay attention that the plastic box has upgraded styles in the market. You can move the cardboard randomly to control the distance between grids.
04 Soft Pouch
Usually, we should rinse it with water, getting them for first use since those tiles are covered with dust and mingled with some broken bits of glass. At that time, the bag with fine and closed holes can come in handy. After washing, you can hang the bag directly or just place it on a flat surface simply. You will be surprised that those tiles are sparkling, especially for glass mosaic tiles. Since it’s light, a single glance will let you know what colors you take. The key fact is they are as cheap as dirt in our daily life.
05 Net Bag
Usually, we should rinse it with water, getting them for first use since they are covered with dust and mingled with some broken bits of glass. At that time, the bag with fine and closed holes can come in handy. After washing, you can hang the bag directly or just place it on a flat surface simply. Since it’s light, a single glance will let you know what colors you take. The key fact is they are as cheap as dirt in our daily life.
06 Plastic Jar
The last one is on the list of recommendations because of the cost-effectiveness. Usually, we buy the nuts or snacks in the supermarket, packaged with a plastic jar. Remember to keep them since they are recycled. The appearance is like a traditional mason jar. Cover with lip, it can protect tiles against dust. Since the characteristic of transparency, it’s apparently omitted to take time to mark color with a label. It’s really a good idea to use them to contain those mosaic tiles.
