Can we change the colors?

All colors can be changed upon request. A onetime USD100 will be charged for all color changes.


Can we change the size?

All sizes can be modified to fit your exact locations; however some designs cannot be made smaller due to design constraints, but all mosaics can be made in a larger size.


What is the normal lead-time on a mosaic?

Your order needs 8 to 21 business days to reach your home. Most mosaics are produced on request however most on-sale items are in stock.


How do I install the mosaic?

The mosaic is supplied directly from the factory, glued to a fiber mesh backing, ensuring that each of the hand-cut marble mosaic tile remains firmly in place during shipping.
Installation of the Mosaic is carried out in a similar manner as installing standard ceramic tiles. Although there is not the need for the mosaics to be installed by a professional, we would recommend this for larger mosaics. Please refer to our installation guide for an A to Z demonstration.

What are the suggested products to seal my mosaic?

Sealing your mosaic is strongly suggested as it will create a barrier between the stone and dirt and stains. We suggest that you enhance it too, to make the colors more vibrant. Even if a sealer is used, it will not make the mosaic totally resistant to stains. Any staining agent that comes into contact with your mosaic should be removed immediately. We recommend the Miracle Sealant Company products because they are widely considered the best available.

Sealant is easy to apply; use a sponge brush, paint brush, or roller to spread it evenly over the surface of the stone. Traffic and use will affect the need to reseal a surface. Resealing annually is a safe time frame.

Gnosis Tesserae recommends the following sealers:

511 Seal & Enhance seals your mosaics and brings the natural stone colors up, making it more vibrant.
Miraclean is a concentrated cleaner developed specifically for marble, terrazzo, granite, tile and masonry surfaces.
If required, Gnosis Tesserae can offer you to seal your mosaic when you order it, for an additional cost.
