Marble mosaic is produced by cutting and polishing small marble stones into suitable sizes. The colored stones with this pattern produced are glued to the floor or on the nets to be used. With these glued stones, a pattern is created. These patterns are sometimes prepared according to the project, sometimes according to the mosaic manufacturer's own production model. Marble mosaic stones are stones that the son of man has known and processed since the earliest times of history. People of the earliest periods of history were also aware of the beauty of marble. They used marble mosaic stones on their floors and walls. Nowadays, among the historical ruins discovered later, you can see decked marble mosaics.

This is one of the reasons why it has been used since ancient times in history.

How to make a marble mosaic?
Marble mosaic is prepared by cutting natural stone marble into certain sizes after it is removed from the soil. Cut natural stone marbles are smaller in size. The molded marbles that have been sized are re-sized according to the mosaic pattern on mosaic cutting machines. Stones that are sized according to the pattern are polished. If the type of mosaic is an aging mosaic, polishing is performed after aging. If the mosaic to be used is to be made as an artistic mosaic, it is polished by polishing. The stones that are ready for design are glued to the mosaic weaving mesh. All these stages are performed by human hands. Machines are used only at the cutting stage of marble. Except for this, it is processed by human hands at all stages. When cutting marble, it is soaked to prevent dust from getting up in the space. Marble workers struggle with dust, water and wetness. The production process of marble mosaic, where human labor is at the final stage, is very valuable. Perhaps what makes the marble mosaic so valuable is that it has been processed laboriously.
How to Assemble Marble Mosaics
Mosaic stones are produced in such a way that they are easy to assemble at the production stage. Stones are usually strung on 50 cm x 50 cm nets. When stones are glued side by side on the mesh, they are lined up in such a way as to preserve the whole. No matter which way you paste it correctly, the correct pattern will turn out. You can reduce the stones pasted on the mesh according to the size of your place. if the 50 × 50 cm mesh mosaic feels wide where you will use it, you can resize it by cutting it according to the width of the place. Thanks to its adhesive, it easily adheres to the wall. It can be used for many years without dismantling at all. After gluing the marble mosaic, let it dry. Then, if there is dust, remove the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Since the production site is a place where the marble powder is located, powders can be found on the mosaics. It is best to dust it with a vacuum cleaner once before you start using it. The surface of the mosaic can be cleaned by wiping it. We do not recommend washing with water when cleaning the mosaic-mounted wall. You can clean it by wiping it with a detergent such as a very dishwashing detergent. Wiping the cleaning processes with a cloth increases the life of the mosaic.
